The whole island of Tasmania is an official wine zone and whilst the island is not `regionalised`, northern and southern Tasmania provide quite distinct viticultural areas. The island has a range of microclimates and soil types which gives the island its diversity of character.
Central to the exploration of the northern vineyard areas is the city of Launceston located on the banks of the Tamar River. Southern Tasmania incorporates wine areas that are within easy reach of Hobart and are carefully located for maximum exposure to the sun and protectin from the cold southerly winds.
The vineyards were first established in Tasmania during colonial settlement. However, in more recent times, Tamar Ridge has established its own success story as part of Tasmania`s modern wine industry. The Devils Corner is a section of the Tamar River near the Kayena Vineyard. Known as a calm area for sailors to berth away from the wild waters of Whirlpool Reach to the south, these wines are a true reflection of vines cultivated in prevailing cool conditions.
This Chardonnay is from their own vineyard located at Kayena on the Westerm bank of the River Tamar in the north east corner of Tasmania. This is a true cool climate Chardonnay style that is crisp and elegant with excellent flavour, weight and intensity without being fat or broad. There is a honeyed complexity on the nose with a peaches and cream palate followed by a touch of acidity holding it in check with a long finish.
