2022 Halliday Wine Companion Results for Waterton Hall Wines, Tamar Valley, TASMANIA

Viognier 2019, Wateron Hall Wines
2022 Haliday Wine Companion - 94 points of silver

2019 Viognier – 94 points Silver

“Hand picked from the 0.15ha Waterton Hall vineyard in Rowella, planted in 1999. Basket pressed; wild fermented in old oak barrels; matured on lees for 7 months with regular batonnage. The holy grail of viognier is varietal integrity with elegance and tension. This wine epitomises all 3, contrasting pristine, crunchy apricot and lemon fruit with apricot kernel and bright Tasmanian acidity. Wild fermentation in old oak barrels brings creamy texture that holds its phenolic grip comfortably through to a long finish. Well executed.”

Tyson Stelzer, published 13 August 2021.

Riesling 2019, Wateron Hall Wines
2022 Haliday Wine Companion - 93 points of silver

2019 Riesling – 93 points Silver

“Hand picked fruit from 0.91ha vineyard in Rowella. Cool-fermented. Pale straw hue. A core of focused Granny Smith apple, lime and lemon is greeted by the apricot and exotic spice of botrytis from this humid site surrounded by the Tamar River. A couple of years age has added subtle roast almond complexity. Impressive line, length and focus, with the acid drive to age long.”

Shiraz [20yr old vines] 2019, Wateron Hall Wines
2022 Haliday Wine Companion - 93 points of silver

2019 Shiraz [20yr old vines] – 93 points Silver

“Hand picked from the Waterton Hall vineyard in Rowella, planted 1999. Matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. Twenty years may not seem a long time by Australian viticultural standards, but for Tasmanian shiraz it’s an eternity, and this is a compelling case for the virtues of vine age. By contrast to the young-vine version the effortless confidence, body, line and length infused here are worth more than an extra $5. White pepper dances over satsuma plum and black cherry fruit. A long finish is sustained by nicely textured, fine- grained tannins. Classy.”

Shiraz 2019, Wateron Hall Wines
2022 Haliday Wine Companion - 90 points of silver

2019 Shiraz – 90 points Silver

“Hand picked from the 0.67ha Waterton Hall vineyard in Rowella, planted 2012; matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. With a refreshingly light, vibrant purple hue, this is an excitingly white pepper-accented young-vine shiraz with cool-climate credentials. Medium bodied, it presents accurate blackberry, satsuma plum and black cherry fruit on a primary, light, simple and short palate. A refreshing summertime take on shiraz.”

Gold Medal at Harpers Wine & Spirit Design Awards 2017

The redesign of our beautiful brand has won a Gold Medal at Harpers Wine & Spirit Design Awards 2017 in London.

The graphic elements for each varietal are derived from historic architectural elements around our farm such as 1850s brick detailing of the stone barn and stained glass from the main homestead but brought in to the current era via modern twists. The arch on the front label depicts the arch of the loggia verandah from the main homestead and the beautiful turquoise colouring is derived from the stained glass.
