The Wine

The Butchers Hill Vineyard located in Richmond at the historic Belmont Lodge was established in 2003. The vineyard is a prominent feature to the Richmond landscape as it protrudes from the borders of the town. The steep north facing slope of this site starting from 30m-100m above sea level means that it receives some very long sunlight hours, protection from cold southern winds and increased drainage of soils. The ferricrete attribute of the soils not only hold heat and water longer as they are darker but the iron oxide also interacts with the production of flavonoids in the fruit and typically produces wines that are complex and robust. There are currently 6ha of vine planted on this property in total. Pooley Wines

95/100 Huon Hooke (The Real Review) "Peach, nectarine and buttery overtones, the palate deliciously fresh, grapefruity and mouth-watering, with gorgeous flavour and refinement. The palate line is superb and the flavour lingers on endlessly. Great elegance. An outstanding wine that is already very accessible."

About the Wine Maker

Pooley Wines was established in 1985 when the late Denis and Margaret Pooley planted ten rows of Riesling and seven rows of Pinot Noir on their 16-hectare farm at Cooinda Vale in the Coal River Valley in southern Tasmania. In 2003, John Pooley, son of Denis and Margaret, and his wife Libby bought Belmont Lodge, a heritage-listed Georgian home on the outskirts of Richmond. They have been lovingly renovating this second Pooley Wines Coal River Valley property, and planted vines on nearby Butchers Hill. In 2007 the first vintage of Pinot was produced from this steep vineyard site that overlooks the township of Richmond.
