Our Wines

Delicate fine wines with silky textures, excellent concentration of flavours, synonymous with classic Tamar Valley wines.



2016 Viognier

This delicate white varietal was basket pressed to old oak creating a pale gold, delicate and luscious savoury palate. Enjoy with all foods on any occasion.

Our winemaker says “this delicate wine is a feast for the senses with lovely silky texture of great length and fresh, perfumed and textured savoury aspect at the end.

2017 Riesling

Top Gold & Champion Riesling Trophy NCCWS 2017.

A long cool summer allowed full fruit flavour development, and optimal acid, sugar balance to produce a classic dry Tamar Valley Riesling. Gradual ripening yielded exceptional fruit which will ensure delightful drinking now, and cellaring potential for years to come. Think seafood, cheese, and Asian food pairing.

2016 Riesling

This crisp, dry and well balanced Riesling was gently pressed and matured to create depth, texture and flavour.

Enjoy now or in years to come.

Our  winemaker says “the palate is generous with excellent concentration of flavours of lime & grapefruit, a classic expression of Tamar Valley Riesling”

2016 Shiraz

Hand picked in April 2016, this wild fermented shiraz matured in French oak exhibits complex, white spice characteristics which creates lingering and elegant mouth feel.

It's fragrant and juicy, very long on the palate, happy in its own skin and impressive, 95 points" - James Halliday, AM

2017 Viognier

Fruit  was late harvested early in May for full flavour development from the Waterton Hall vineyard which was whole bunch pressed directly to barrel and wild fermented. Wine was left on lees to build texture and complexity until just prior to bottling in January 2018.
‘A delicious example of cool climate Viognier, rich and delicate, a feast for the senses with a beautiful perfume. Silky texture with great length through the palate, soft & cerebral’

A wonderful white wine for all occasions but particularly lovely with roast chicken & roast vegetables.




Our Vineyard

Waterton Hall is located on the pristine banks of the Tamar Valley 30 minutes north of Launceston. The gently sloping vineyard facing the Tamar River is ideal for the development and growth of both red and white varietals. The slow release of cool climate flavours brings about a depth of texture and the ability to create complex, expressive, and refined wines.


We have 2.5 hectares of Riesling, Shiraz and Viognier, and in addition we have planted (in late 2017) four new pinot noir clones and two new chardonnay clones which extends the vineyard to 10 hectares.


Healthy Soils for Productive Vines

Loam over clay soils are ideal for cool climate grape production  and produce classic Tamar Valley wines. Natural mulched animal fertilizer is used to boost soil nutrition and structure.

Integrated pest and disease management is practised to minimise inputs and maintain healthy vines. Grass sward is managed between the vines to maintain biodiversity and to minimise erosion.

The Vine Year

The vine canopy is carefully managed all year round by Tom and Joy for healthy productive vines yielding high quality fruit. Sunlight penetrating into the fruit zone is the goal. Hand pruned for intelligent vineyard decision making. Hand picked to maintain premium fruit quality.
