Vineyard

Domaine Dawnelle Vineyard (under development)

The Domaine

Our 8.5 hectare parcel of land (42°45'S, 147°12'E) is located in rural Granton – Tasmania’s most eminent terroir for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. At 160m above sea level and perched atop a north-facing chalk ridge, the shallow topsoil reveals a myriad of fossilised marine shells over chalk and limestone sub-layers.

The vineyard, still in its developmental stage has been planted with the classic Burgundy varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In addition, an idyllic patch of land has been planted with Riesling. Planted in 0.2 Hectare blocks, this will allow us to achieve meticulous management of our clones and micro-ferments.

 

Vineyard Designate

The Domain Dawnelle Vineyard Designate - Tinderbox

Tinderbox Vineyard

Tinderbox Vineyard (43°06'S, 147°33'E) is the first of our Vineyard Designate Wines to explore Pinot Noir and the intricacies of Tasmania’s cool climate sub-regions. Planted in 1994, the mature vines overlook the D’Entrecasteaux Channel in Southern Tasmania. The fruit reflects the unique characteristics of the vineyard’s low-yielding basalt soils of volcanic origin and the microclimate which is largely influenced by the surrounding sea breezes.

In the early 1800s, landowner Captain Joshua Fergusson named the site, Tinder Box Bay where he established tobacco gardens from fine Virginia plants on his farm. Today, mature vines overlook the bay which is now home to the Tinderbox Marine Nature Reserve.

 

Elsewhere Vineyard

Elsewhere Vineyard (43°15'S, 147°01'E) is located in Tasmania’s Huon Valley and is our second Pinot Noir to join the Vineyard Designate Series. First planted in 1984, the mature vines overlook the Huon River at Glaziers Bay and are amongst some of Tasmania’s most southerly ‘cold climate’ vineyards.

 

Kinvarra Vineyard

Kinvarra Vineyard (42°74'S, 146°93'E) is located in Tasmania’s picturesque Upper Derwent Valley and will be the third Vineyard Designate Series Pinot Noir to be released. The original Pinot Noir block was first planted in 1990 and continued expansion of the vineyard has occurred since 2009.
