Wine Region - Introduction of Tasmania
Updated: Apr 6, 2018
In 2013 a Tasmanian chardonnay was rated the best wine in its class in the world. A year later a Tasmanian single-malt whisky was judged the best single-malt in the world. These achievements – both at respected international events in London – reflect the quality of the ingredients and the passion of the people in beverage production in Tasmania.
Tasmania’s naturally elegant wines are made from grapes grown in climates similar to those of the famous European wines - with mild summers and long autumn days that ripen the grapes providing elegance and intensity of flavour. This unique island state now produces elegant cool climate wines such as Pinot Noir, sparkling wines, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. Tasmania enjoys a national and international reputation as a leading producer of some of Australia’s premium wines, with its Pinot Noir and sparkling wines in particular winning high praise and plenty of trophies from wine judges and critics alike.
