The Pipers River Vineyard

Clover Hill Vineyard is in Tasmania’s Pipers River, an area
becoming acknowledged as the premier source of sparkling
wine in Australia. It is ideally suited for growing the “holy
trinity”of sparkling varietals; chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot
meunier. The 66-hectare property overlooking Bass Strait
has a similar climate to the Champagne region of France,
with mild autumn temperatures with maximums in the low
20°C and minimums around 10ºC. The climate creates a long
ripening period, which allows the fruit to accumulate intense
flavour balanced with fine acidity. Vines are close-spaced and
planted in deep, red volcanic soil in a frost-free amphitheatre,
orientated north/south to maximise sunlight exposure.
