In this virtual wine tasting, Subi and Helen (from The Farm Shed East Coast Wine Centre, Bicheno, Tasmania) head 14km north of Bicheno to a little valley nestled beneath the mountains and the sea to taste wines from Apsley Gorge Vineyard.
They tell us about the French wine making experience of its founder and the links between France and this little corner of Tassie’s East Coast. They sample the 2017 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, now in very short supply from this decidedly boutique producer. However they assure us that the 2018 vintages of both wines are just as impressive, and available from The Farm Shed.
There are also some more suggestions for amazing nibbles to accompany the wines, from more of Tasmania’s boutique food producers.
