Abel's Tempest by Heemskerk Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2011
Through the violent tempests that raged around the coast of Tasmania, Dutchman Abel Tasman navigated his flagship, the Heemskerk, finally sighting the island’s west coast in 1642. Many of Tasman’s attempts were thwarted by these huge winds which, while frustrating Tasman, are integral to creating the cool climate that Tasmania’s vineyards thrive in. This wine embodies the purity of Tasmania’s fruit. Racy acidity of chardonnay combined with the delicacy of pinot noir. Bottle fermentation and aging on lees for 24 months gives creaminess and an elegant length.
