Tasting Notes
The Clover Hill Vintage Brut Cuvée 2013 vintage has a light straw colour indicative of a chardonnay, this refined wine has developed a golden hue during its three years on tirage.

In addition to its colour, this time has also resulted in a delicate bead with a persistent mousse. On the nose, it displays citrus and red berries, with a hint of toasted brioche.

The palate is delicate and creamy, but driven by a natural acidity from a cool and extended growing season in Tasmania.

Delicate, with superb length, this wine will drink well now and age for up to ten years.

"It came about that I swung by Clover Hill’s swish new cellar door and decided to do a whip through the current offering. The views, the architecture, the ability to sneak in a cheese plate and chill out are all super appealing, wow, what a spot and the space/design is phenomenal. Kudos, Clover Hill.

Outstanding. Clover Hill might just be Australia’s best sparkling all-rounder. This wine spends three years on lees. Mea culpa, my colleagues and I travelling around Pipers River that afternoon drank a purchased bottle of this wine, in the car (not the driver), between Clover Hill and the next vineyard some 20 minutes away. No joke. So good.

An outstanding sparkling wine in any terms. It’s pretty in perfume, inviting with green apple, faint marzipan, a touch of funky-yeasty character, but everything just so and balanced. The palate is where the magic is, showing incredible precision, a tight, compact thrust of bristling fizz, lemon-squeezed on apple freshness, licks of sweet spice, glazed nuts and faint nougat, finishing epically long with sparkling, tangy acidity and a light chew of chalky-mineral character. Stunning wine."

Clover Hill is one of Australia’s very few premium sparkling houses solely producing sparkling wines in the traditional method. With the intention to produce a refined sparkling wine to rival that of great Champagne houses, Clover Hill was established in 1986 on the site of an old dairy farm in north eastern Tasmania. These first plantings produced Clover Hill’s debut vintage in 1991. Since this time, Clover Hill has become synonymous with elegance and refinement, gaining a reputation of uncompromising quality.

Clover Hill’s commitment to excellence has been recognised with numerous awards which include being inducted into the Australian Sparkling Hall of Honour in 2017 and being twice awarded Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year.

Clover Hill sparkling wine is sourced from pre-eminent vineyards in Tasmania, an area becoming acknowledged as the premier location for cool climate sparkling wine in Australia. Clover Hill’s first vintage was in 1991, which solely comprised chardonnay. Since 1994, the blend has evolved to include all three classic sparkling grapes, with pinot noir and pinot meunier added to attain the iconic style.

Clover Hill is created using traditional methods. Furthermore, portions of this wine have been aged in small-format french oak foudres and barriques to highlight the complexity that can be achieved by a sparkling house of this calibre.

Clover Hill Vintage Brut Cuvée 2013 is made up of 63% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir, 6% Pinot Meunier. Winery Notes

Reviews
"Chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, whole-bunch pressed and separately fermented, blended prior to secondary fermentation and matured on lees for five years, the dosage 9g/l. A powerful wine, the bouquet spicy, with dried flower and fruit aromas, the palate picking up the chase immediately."
