Stargazer Palisander Pinot Noir - Tasmania
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
The nose is marked by cherry pip and rosehip notes with some dried thyme and chinotto in the background.
The palate has plenty of pomegranate brightness married with berry coulis creaminess, supported by fine, chamois-like tannins.
Hand harvested on 21 Narcg 2018, 25% whole bunches with the remainder destemmed, with whole berries. Cold soaked for three days before being warmed up for fermnet with indigenous (wild) yeasts. Pressed just before dryness on 7 April 2018. Racked off gross lees to Francois Freres and Ermitage French Oak puncheons, 20% of which were new.
Ten months on oak fine lees prior to blending, with 6 weeks in tank before bottling. Bottled 19 March 2019.
Stargazer pays tribute to Abel Tasman, who, as an explorer and navigator, must have spent a fair amount of time gazing towards the heavens. Tasman, a Dutchman under the employ of the United East India Company was the first European to sight Tasmania (on 24 November 1642) and then the South Island of New Zealand, nineteen days later on 13 December.
He is a natural link for me, having been born and bred a South Islander, and now having fallen in love with another island, Tasmania. The opportunity to work with pristine fruit to craft the wines that I am passionate about in an environment of extraordinary beauty is really all I have ever wanted to do as a winemaker.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
