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”. - winegenius.com

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

2013- Royal Hobart International Wine Show- SILVER x2.  2013 is now at about at its best. Long with mellowed fruits, a beautifully integrated wine. SOLD OUT

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

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

2016- 28th Tasmanian Wine Show 2018- BRONZE . 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.
