About

Relbia Estate sources fruit from the southern end of the Tamar Valley, ten kilometres south of the historic City of Launceston in Tasmania.

This family owned vineyard produces elegant cool climate wines showing crisp acidity, complexity and intensity - ready to drink now or aged by cellar.

 

“I believe winemaking is a bit like sport. It combines skill, experience and precision instinct when it matters most. Like a cricket test match  – the game in its most classic, serious, most stamina-sapping form – I approach the most demanding and most testing grape of all, pinot noir, with careful consideration and mental intuition.  I pace myself like an opening batsman during the harvest. I guard against exhaustion; fatigue leads to mistakes. I continue despite the discomfort of the unique weather conditions of Northern Tasmanian. I’m not one for the flashy, reverse-sweep sort of wine either. But what I am is passionate, with a competitive spirit that is completely focused on crafting and creating the very best wine this region has to offer.”
