Clover Hill 2014


Moving to their vintage, another wonderful expression of what Tassie fruit and quality craftsmanship can provide. Clover Hill’s first vintage fizz was the 1991, 100% Chardonnay and the estate was established in 1986. From 1994, it has included the three traditional “champagne” varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A small amount spends time in small-format French oak foudres and barriques. This contributes to the wine’s complexity. 

A lovely array of aromas and flavours intertwine here – a very gentle note of strawberries, with peaches, freshly made toast, orange rind and spices. Nicely balanced, a soft gentle style with length. A wine with a future, although one doubts that much will last long, such is its approachability now. Don’t be afraid to give it some time in the glass, which helps it to open up.
