While working in England in the early 80’s, Bob Richter was exposed to wines from all corners of the world…Chile, Bulgaria, Lebanon, California, Hungary and of course, the ‘classic’ regions, all available at the local independent wine store.
Bob became so enthused with wine and heavily influenced by the great wine writer of the time Hugh Johnson, that he had the ambition to be the pioneer of cool climate wine making in Tasmania.
The white wines are whole bunch pressed to old French oak barrels for indigenous yeast fermentation and a minimum 6 months on lees.
The reds are fermented in small batch open fermenters with care not to over extract the copious tannins in the fruit before pressing to French oak (30% new for the Merlot and Mattock blend), with 9 to 20 months barrel aging, then bottled under cork (Diam, to avoid cork taint).
Grey Sands deliver wines with distinctive European influence that are complex, intriguing and made to develop and last.
