The foundations of Clover Hill were laid in 1986 when the Goelet family established a vineyard on the site of an old dairy farm in Tasmania. The brand’s first vintage was released in 1991. The company takes pride in its wines, known for their superb quality, elegance, and distinctive Tasmanian style. The aim of the company is to craft great sparkling wines using old school French methodology.
The classic Clover Hill Tasmanian Cuvée is a blend of three grape varieties - 59% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 4% Pinot Meunier. The wine underwent fermentation in its bottle, and was matured on lees for at least 24 months for giving it the intensity associated with wines by Clover Hill. This led to the creation of a medium bodied drink that is pale straw in colour. The attractive bouquet exudes rich aromas of honey and cashew, coupled with red apple and lime characters. This nose effortlessly shifts to the well balanced palate, containing delightful flavours of apple pie and citrus which combine with fresh natural acidity, to provide a clean finish. This beautiful sparkling white is a great match to caviar, fresh oysters and pan seared scallops.
