Careful vineyard selection, matching the right varietals with the appropriate subregion within the cool climate of Tasmania, to ensure fruit flavour and quality are maximised. Sourcing and nurturing fruit from across all subregions of Tasmania to produce wines that are complex and show distinct and concentrated varietal flavour.
Eddystone Point range is fresh, vibrant and approachable in its youth. Eddystone Point wines are made for everyday drinking. The core of the range express concentrated varietal character with a fresh backbone of acidity, but the youth and curiosity of the Eddystone Point drinker encourages more experimental winemaking inclusion and an element of funk.
Long standing relationships with Tasmanian growers, (many of which grow not just wine-grapes, but poppies, sheep and a variety of crops as well), combined with a dedicated and passionate cool climate viticultural team provides the assurance that fruit quality is always the focus. Eddystone Point reaps the rewards of the years spent by passionate people such as Ed Carr, who believed in the potential of Tasmania to produce premium fruit, and who continue to explore the opportunities presented by the diversity of sub regions Tasmania has to offer.
The attention to detail occurs in the vineyard. Our experienced and passionate viticultural team work diligently alongside our growers, guiding and supporting them to ensure fruit quality is the focus and flavour ripeness is optimized.
It is this investment in the vineyards that sets the winemaking team up to receive fruit of the very best quality possible, which is the key to producing premium cool climate wines.
