Lutruwita was born of the Tasmanian bushfires in 2019. The Huon Valley suffered from smoke taint. Jim was able to source parcels of fruit from vineyards in the North of Tasmania (Marions and Pipers Brook), he made single vineyard wines but also produced his first Tasmanian Regional Blend in the Lutruwita. A quirk of fate that has delivered yet another amazing Tasmanian Pinot Noir. Now sourced from multiple vineyards from Huon in the South to Marions in the North, it is a perfect example of powerful Tasmanian Pinot Noir.

"...  this is the all Tasmania blend. Huon, Coal, East Coast and Tamar. Built from the single vineyard wines.

High toned spice, very fragrant, dried flowers, red cherry, a bit of undergrowth. Fancy scents. Crisp and bright to taste, good concentration, more spice here, almost tactile and prickly, but let’s say lively – a serious feeling pinot noir with plenty to sink one’s teeth into. Refined, and very good feel here."

93 Points - Mike Bennie - The Wine Front

"Pinot noir sourced from West Tamar, Pipers River, Coal River Valley and the East Coast. Red and dark cherry fruit aromas with notes of fine spice, pressed purple flowers, raspberry, leaf litter and stone. Lithe and sure of fruit on the palate with some darker fruit tones flowing in, darker spice, too, with chalky tannin support and a lovely mineral-acid cadence."
