The Holm Oak team has been crafting luscious expressions of cool-climate Tassie wines for more than 10 years - and the winery has gone from strength to strength. Bec is winemaker; with 18 years experience gained in Australia and the US, she is well and truly ensconced in her winery domain. Tim is viticulturist, a third-generational grape grower and an agronomist with extensive viticultural experience.
Their worlds collide occasionally - most often when they go about the business of raising their two young boys. But mostly they stick to their own worlds, with a singular goal in sight - to produce single vineyard wines with personality and character that reflect them and the place in which they live, Tasmania’s pristine Tamar Valley, and their own personalities, rustic, down to earth, not super polished but genuine and authentic. They are creative wine producers, pushing boundaries and trying new techniques, but always remaining true to Tasmania’s highly regarded winemaking reputation.
Winemaking notes: The fruit was harvested at 12.0 Be to retain high natural acidity, with the fruit was showing strong citrus and grapefruit characters, as well as some floral notes. The fruit was pressed to tank and allowed to settle for 24 hours and then racked to barrel (20% new French oak and 80% 1-4 year old). The wine underwent 100% natural fermentation, and 20% malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in oak for 10 months prior
Tasting notes: This is a refined and elegant cool climate Chardonnay. The nose displays aromas of citrus fruit, apricot kernel and white peach with spicy integrated oak, whilst the palate is fine and minerally.
