Barringwood | Classic Cuvée | 2016
Pale straw. Strawberries, citrus, apple and toasty notes. Fresh palate with fine bead. Crisp minerality, strawberry and citrus characters with hints of seaspray.
Barringwood vineyard is located on a steep north facing slope overlooking the Don Valley in Tasmania's central North. Established in 1993 the vineyard rises to an elevation of 280m and has one of the longest growing seasons in Tasmania giving their wines delicacy, elegance and immense complexity as well as a distinct backbone of cool climate acidity.
Their success in producing outstanding wines on a climatically marginal site is dependent on supreme diligence and attention to detail in the vineyard.
