Apogee- Winery with the Perfect Australian terroir

The history of the Apogee Winery in Tasmania begins with the owner’s search for the famous terroir of the cooler climate areas of France, but in Australia. This search led to the purchase of the land on which the Apogee winery currently stands. The philosophy of the Apogee is based on three basic principles. The first is to use climatology to locate the perfect location to ripen grapes for the production of sparkling wine using the classic Champagne grapes and on yellow volcanic soils. The second is to produce only single vineyard wines so that the wines that are produced perfectly reflect the vineyard conditions and the intensive way in that they are worked. The final principle is that the scale needs to be restricted to 2 hectares which makes the vineyards easier to manage.

Ensuring Highest Quality

In 2013 the Apogee Winery was awarded the Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year Award which was the first accolade in the estate’s journey.

Despite the acknowledgment of the quality of the wines, the wine makers have committed to limiting production to between 10 000 and 20 000 bottles per year to ensure only the highest quality levels are maintained.

Balancing the Classic Blends

The main production of sparkling wine on the estate is a classic blend, made using traditional methods and comprising of approximately 45% pinot noir and 50% chardonnay. The balance is provided by Pinot Meunier to produce a Deluxe Vintage Brut. The winery also produces a Deluxe Vintage Brut Rose that is made of 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay.
