Established in 1990, Stefano Lubiana is Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard, the family are now 5th and 6th generation winemakers with a history going back to Italy. Primavera is a single vineyard Pinot Noir made up of a mix of two terroirs: grey gravelly loams over clay and red loam over gravel. Fruit is mostly wild fermented, de-stemmed and taken off skins early to retain lots of fruit flavour. The grapes are hand picked, hand sorted and fermented with some whole bunches. Maturation takes place in French oak for a period of 8-10 months.

Silky, fresh and blessed with delicious fruit this is a totally irresistible Tassie Pinot.

Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a vibrant red purple hue. Sailing out of the glass with a perfumed like bouquet are violet, red to dark cherry, strawberry and anise aromas followed by a mix of fresh herbs, forest floor and spicy cedar. Light on its feet with a fresh yet silky mouthfeel, the palate is blessed with delicious red to dark cherry and strawberry fruits which show terrific drive. Subtle anise, forest floor, infusions of fresh herbs and spicy cedar linger underneath.
Beautifully balanced with fresh acidity and polished tannins it finishes long, elegant and totally irresistible.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
