The 42° South range of wines is intended to be fruit-driven and 'food-friendly' in style without being too intellectual or challenging. Our fruit selection, from different vineyard sites around Tasmania, and straight-forward, down-to-earth winemaking techniques are aimed at producing wines with clear and characteristic varietal fruit flavours.

Colour: Medium intensity bright red.

Bouquet: Fresh ripe berry flavours dominate, with hints of sweet oak and Pinot gaminess.

Palate: Clean and soft, with fruit sweetness and savoury “juiciness” from the balance of fresh acidity and soft fruit tannins.

Ageing potential: Up to five years

Alcohol: 13.5% v/v

Food suggestions: Almost anything!

Awards: Bronze Medal, 2007 Tasmanian Wine Show, Gold Medal, 2009 San Diego International Wine Competition
