We hope our wines bring you the joy of good company, the subtle pleasures of food-friendly aromas and flavors, and a sense of place that faithfully reflects the loving care with which they were grown and made. Minutes from the Heritage Highway that connects northern and southern Tasmania, Jinglers Creek Vineyard is located on Relbia Road, overlooking the picturesque North Esk River Valley. The site is ideally suited to the production of high quality, cool climate Tasmanian wines. Our vineyard's planted rows enjoy a bright easterly aspect, and are far enough inland to be free from the adverse effects of sea breezes and coastal rainfall. Its gentle slopes provide good air drainage and relief from seasonal frosts. Relbia's low average annual rainfall (680mm) helps regulate vine growth naturally. Our 2-hectares of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay display moderate vigour, which is a prerequisite for the development of good colour, aroma and flavour intensity. Our cellar door is open 12-5 Saturday & Sunday or by appointment. « less
