The Apsley Gorge Pinot Noir 2020 vintage colour is typically dark with a translucent depth. The nose has the rich Apsley Pinot fruit, forest floor and natural yeast funkiness, and so much more. So much complexity from such an ethereal and translucent wine. The palate is rich and textural, with stunning fruit tannins with a rich and lingering finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

Situated on the east coast of Tasmania at Bicheno, Apsley Gorge takes its name from a mountain pass. It shares with the other east coast wineries the capacity to produce premium quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Former Abalone diver and Lobster fisherman Brian Franklin planted Apsley Gorge with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the early 1990’s with the first vintage in 1993.

The vineyard, about 7 hectares, is farmed as low yield and non-irrigated to ensure the stability of the fruit, hand pruned and hand picked maintains the quality of the grapes from vineyard to winery.

Brian took over the winemaking in the late 1990’s and quickly became noticed as an exceptional winemaker. His winemaking skills in the traditional French style were honed originally with Phillipe Charlopin, one of Burgundy’s most notable winemakers. Brian has worked every vintage in Burgundy since 2000, lately working with Phillipe’s son Yann at Domain Charlopin-Tissier.
