Overview

Overview

Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries. With a historical connection to Tasmania, with both James Halliday’s championing of the region and the decision to previously source from the region for the award winning 2011 Roslyn Vineyard Pinot Noir, our ongoing access to Tasmanian fruit is a natural extension to our Yarra Valley range.

Sourced from fruit grown on the White Hills Vineyard in Northern Tasmania, part of this wine was fermented in tank and part in seasoned French barriques. The two components were blended and bottled, resulting in a fragrant and textural style.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Fragrant apple blossom lift with ripe fruits of yellow peach and mandarin, augmented with hints of five spice.

Flavours and Palate

Textural and generous in style, delivering ripe stone fruit and cumquat flavours held in balance by fine phenolics due to the seasoned oak maturation, that lengthen and drive the palate.

Tasmania

The Apple Isle is aptly nicknamed for its fresh and pure produce – its seafood and sparkling are national treasures. Some of the best intensely flavoured and aromatic Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir around also thrive in Tassie’s pristine, cool climate.

Andrew Fleming - Chief Winemaker

Growing up in wine country Mildura, at just 13 years of age, Andrew attempted to make his own wine; the end result was undrinkable, his father’s shed a shambles, but the winemaking seed was sown. 
After completing a Bachelor of Agriculture at the University of Melbourne, Andrew spent two years at Mildara in Coonawarra before heading to Bordeaux where he furthered his winemaking qualifications with a Diplome National d’Oenologue from the University of Bordeaux. Since then he’s completed vintages at the iconic Chateau Haut Brion in Bordeaux, several vintages in Languedoc, in addition to completing a vintage at Matanzas Creek winery in California’s Sonoma Valley. For six years Andrew was a Winemaker at Lindeman’s Karadoc winery and in 1996, became the Winery Manager of Seppelt in Great Western; providing the perfect segue for his current role as Chief Winemaker Coldstream Hills which he has held since 2001.
