In the realm of sommeliers, wine experts, and wine connoisseurs, Riesling is what you might call a cult favourite. But not just any Riesling — particularly the star-bright, Granny-Smith-skin-packed, sour-candy lime-fests that characterise the best dry Rieslings on our green Earth. Thankfully, some of this life-changing Riesling comes from Tasmania, where the chill air and cooling breezes blanket banks of vines like those peppering the land at Holm Oak. Run by husband-and-wife team Tim and Bec Duffy (and His Royal Majesty Pinot the Pig), Holm Oak uses modern sustainable techniques to bring forth classic Tassie vino such as this Riesling, wrapped in stony layers of citrus and flint and gilded with festive pops of spiced apple and bright shoots of lime leaf.

Halliday Wine Companion

The perfumed, flowery bouquet leads into a mouthwatering blast of citrus sorbet and flinty acidity. A wine that underlines the belief that Tasmanian riesling and pinot noir are the two best varietal wines of the island.

THE MAKER

Holm Oak

Tasmania’s wine pioneers — and their pig


The 70-kilometre Tamar River wends its placid way through the dewy hills and vivid green stretches of its namesake Tamar Valley, giving brilliant life to the dark soil and to the likes of Holm Oak, the Tasmanian winery run by husband-and-wife Tim and Bec Duffy and overseen by the snuffling attentions of Pinot the (not-so-teacup) pig. Holm Oak, set snug amidst the region’s temperate sea breezes and wind-sheltering slopes, first set down vines in 1983, making it one of Tasmania’s older vineyards.
Today, Tim, Bec, and Pinot cultivate the likes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot alongside Arneis and Chardonnay, practicing a sustainable synthesis of organics and modern chemistry to highlight what the region does best: cool-climate wines with outstanding natural brightness.
