Resolution Pinot NOir 2007 to present

Three clones of Pinot Noir vines were planted at Resolution Vineyard in 2003 with the first vintage produced in 2007.  The grapes are hand picked by friends and family of Resolution Vineyard and transported to Frogmore Creek in the Coal River Valley for making.  The 1 hectare vineyard produces between 1-3 tonnes of grapes each year, depending on the growing conditions of the season.  

Resolution first displayed its wine, the 2008 Pinot Noir at the Royal Hobart International Wine Show in 2009.  This Show is the premiere Pinot Noir wine show in Australia.  2008 performed exceptionally well being awarded a Bronze medal.  A secret gem had now been unleashed. SOLD OUT

2012- review by Wine Genius group giving Resolution Vineyard Pinot Noir its highest score to date 94/100.  

“Bright crimson in colour and highly seductive and absorbing. Sour cherry, plum, spiced red fruits and a hint of rosewater perfume. Long and hugely textural with subtle but juicy tannins, crackling acidity and wonderful length. It will build in presence with time in the bottle”. -

2012 is described by Peter as very smooth with lovely balanced fruit and oak, similar to 2009. SOLD OUT

2013- 2013 is now at about at its best. Long with mellowed fruits, a beautifully integrated wine. SOLD OUT.

2014- A well structured wine with much sought after savoury overtones.  Lingers on the palate. Very well balanced. A much praised wine. SOLD OUT

2015- Peter did not have a lot of hope for this wine but it surprised him.  It was the most popular wine at last years Open Wine Weekend. being the favourite of the majority of tasters.  Still very fruit driven and a lovely drop. SOLD OUT

* 2014 & 2015 were not entered into the Royal Hobart International Wine Show due to the low yield.

2016- Peter and his family first tasted this vintage straight from the barrel at Christmas and agreed this is a wine with great potential.  A statement now proven with a Bronze medal. A fine young wine, ready to enjoy from the moment it was bottled.  Strong soft plum and cherry fruits with good length. Will develop well in the coming years but most will be drunk long before then. LIMITED STOCK.

* 28th Tasmanian Wine Show 2018- BRONZE . 

2017- A year on from its release in February 2018 the structure of this Pinot has developed. Further time to breath in the cellar will benefit this lively pinot.   

Royal Hobart International Wine Show 2018 & 2019 Tasmanian Wine Show - BRONZE Medal

2018- The newly release 2018 Pinot Noir is already being enjoyed and well received. Winsor Dobbin wrote on his website: "This is a sturdy example of Tasmanian Pinot with savoury and sour cherry flavours and savoury overtones with plenty of length.  There is a lot of palate interest here and this one should cellar well."  

* Tasmanian Wine Show 2020 - BRONZE Medal

2019- No Vintage due to Smoke Taint from bush fires in southern Tasmania over the 2019 summer.

2020 - Vivid ruby red, aromatic with bold red cherry, blueberry, wet stone and wafts of fennel seed and cardamon.  Hint of charcuterie as well. Vivacious and very tasty in the mouth. Medium weight but with delicious persistence of pristine fruit flavours, matched with a little almond/vanilla from the oak and finished with the finest of tannins. This gental persistnece is one of the wine's most admirable features. (Michele, The Pinot Shop, Launceston).

2021- Due for release in February 2022, stay tuned............
