Elsewhere Vineyard a name to watch in Tasmania

Elsewhere Vineyard, tucked away in the deep south of the Huon Valley, overlooking the sleepy Huon River - is a name to watch among the rising stars of Tasmanian wine. 

The vineyard has been through several incarnations but is undergoing a revival under new owner Owen Knight, who has put a lot of work into the vines and had striking new labels designed. 

The first six hectares of vines were planted in 1984, with another four hectares planted between 2003 and 2005.

The Elsewhere vineyards grow pinot noir (the region's standout), chardonnay, riesling and gewurztraminer - and the 2017 aromatic whites are standouts, the riesling crisp and linear, the gewurz impressively varietal. Impressive work from Winemaking Tasmania.

Neighbouring vineyards include Jim Chatto's Isle vineyard, Sailor Seeks Horse and Stefano Lubiana's Panorama vineyards, so all the signs are good.

All the wines are dry grown and made exclusively from estate fruit. The cellar door is open Friday-Sunday, or ring ahead for an appointment. Look out for detailed tasting notes shortly.

Elsewhere Vineyard is at 584 Silver Hill Road, Glaziers Bay, TAS. 0401 975 195.

  1. I find it interesting that no mention is made of the joint owner, and co worker! Eve Knight! Beautiful wines, stirling viticultural practices, and worthy of a visit and a tasting.
