Clover Hill Vineyard is in Tasmania’s Pipers River, an area becoming acknowledged as the premier source of sparkling wine in Australia. It is ideally suited for growing the “holy trinity”of sparkling varietals; chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. The 66-hectare property overlooking Bass Strait has a similar climate to the Champagne region of France, with mild autumn temperatures with maximums in the low 20°C and minimums around 10ºC.

The climate creates a long ripening period, which allows the fruit to accumulate intense flavour balanced with fine acidity. Vines are close-spaced and planted in deep, red volcanic soil in a frost-free amphitheatre, orientated north/south to maximise sunlight exposure.
