    Best New Winery of the Year | James Halliday Wine Companion 2020

    After working with Tasmanian fruit for nearly two decades, Glenn James with his wife, Jo Marsh, have released a range of truly unique wines from some of Tasmania’s most exciting vineyards. Glenn's role as Chief Winemaker for Winemaking Tasmania comes with some pretty good perks, not least of which is the ability to year-on-year, see which vineyards are producing the best fruit. This access has given Glenn and Jo the ability to pick and choose from the 'best of the best', and attack the Shy Susan project with a no-compromise approach. Select small parcels of fruit are crafted to reflect variety, vineyard and the stylistic approach forged from Glenn’s skill and experience.

    Alsace here we come. Spices of every kind, rose petals and lychee (fresh and canned), all layer upon layer. Miraculously it doesn't cloy on the finish, leaving the mouth fresh. Some very slick winemaking here, fore this has a depth of flavour seldom encountered.

    Direct from the website: “The 2016 season was quite warm and early with fruit being harvested in March. Pristine fruit was hand harvested from the White Hills vineyard at Relbia (in the hills south of the Tamar Valley). The fruit was then gently de-stemmed to tank press and allowed to soak on skins for 12 hours to ensure maximum flavour extraction. Pressed directly to barrel without the use of sulphur dioxide or press cuts, the juice was wild fermented in a new puncheon with full solids at around 18 degrees Celsius. Maturation in oak for 16 months on lees then occurred to build texture, complexity and allow all the flavour components to fully integrate.”

    Matured in a brand new barrel for over a year but boy has it taken that oak and kicked it to the curb. Soft, flavoursome, rich, elegant; it turns its hand to everything and makes it look like a snip. Fabulous. Heady in an excellent way.

    Aromas of lychees and honey with rose water and such sweet-smelling florals. The palate has a fresh, juicy and attractively luscious texture. Lots to like here. Drink now. Screw cap.
