HADDOW + DINEEN is a collaborative winemaking project from cheesemaker, Nick Haddow, and winemaker, Jeremy Dineen with the aim to make small batches of intensely Tasmanian wines. Our grapes are sourced exclusively from a single, tiny vineyard in Yorktown, near the mouth of the Tamar River in northern Tasmania where vines grow in white quartz gravel. Our 'Grain of Truth' Pinot Gris is hand-picked, 100% whole bunch pressed, wild yeast, barrel fermented, unfined and unfiltered. Small crops of intensely flavoured fruit, indigenous yeast and barrel fermentation impart genuine richness and texture to this multifaceted and textural Pinot Gris. Aromas of ripe peach, subtle nuts and wild honey give hints of the lusciousness and complexity of the palate. Powerful and balanced with lingering flavours. “IT HAS A RICHNESS AND DRIVE WITHOUT THE OILINESS AND HEAT THAT CAN COME WHEN PURSUING FLAVOUR IN PINOT GRIS, AND IT IS AS GOOD AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE VARIETY CAN ACTUALLY DO AS I’VE SEEN FOR SOME TIME.” Nick Ryan, The Australian. “THERE IS TEXTURE AND RICHNESS TO BURN HERE, MORE AKIN TO A WINE FROM EUROPE IN THAT RESPECT BUT WITH FINE TASSIE ACIDITY DRAWING IT INTO LINE. PEAR AND PEACH FRUIT, WHITE FLORAL HINTS, GRILLED NUTS, DRIED HONEY AND EVANESCENT FLASHES OF MARZIPAN AND CRUSHED STONE. IT’S A LOVELY WINE WITH GREAT INHERENT DRINKABILITY AND FLOW ACROSS THE PALATE.” Dave Brookes, The Adelaide Review “ONE OF THE BEST GRIS' I HAVE TRIED IN A WHILE. IT'S GOT RIPE PEAR AROMAS, HINTS OF HONEYED NUTS, AND A SUBTLE MARZIPAN NOTE, OVER QUARTZ-LIKE MINERALITY. IT'S GOT WEIGHT AND DRIVE, BUT WITHOUT THE CLOYING OILINESS THAT CAN BEFALL GRIS. THE CRYSTALLINE ACIDITY IS MARVELLOUS AND CARRIES THROUGH TO THE NUTTY, COMPLEX FINISH. GREAT WINE.” Annandale Cellars
