Australian wines were not known for cool climate. You probably remember the heavy shiraz and super oaky chardonnay that were highly sought after in the 80s & 90s. But one simply needs to look at the success of Tasmanian wines over the last few decades.
Like many regions, Tasmania has moved away from producing the heavy shiraz and oaky chardonnay in favour of something lighter and with a level of sophistication that Australia’s winemaking community could have only dreamt of.
Hailing from Freycinet Coast, east of Tasmania, this full bodied 2021 Milton Pinot Noir is now available for you to enjoy at the Club. The pretty fruit flavours & bright acids partner well with a light red meat such as duck, and you’ll be glad to know that for tomorrow only, head chef Fernando will be cooking his special handmade gnocchi with duck ragu.
Picture yourself perched up on a small hill, basking in the sun with beautiful lake views at Milton Vineyard, and take a sip of this lip-smacking pinot at the Club so you can see and appreciate the joys and diversity of Australia’s cool climate wines that have evolved over the years.
