Overview

Overview

Through the violent tempests that raged around the coast of Tasmania, Dutchman Abel Tasman navigated his flagship, the Heemskerk, finally sighting the island’s west coast in 1642. Many of Tasman’s attempts were thwarted by these huge winds which, while frustrating Tasman, are integral to creating the cool climate that Tasmania’s vineyards thrive in

Made entirely from parcels of premium cool climate Tasmanian fruit, Abel's Tempest is all elegance. Bright wild cherries, ripe raspberries and red currents dominate the nose, carrying through to the palate, balanced by subtle toasty oak and silky tannins.
