The list does great justice to the array of fine wine emerging from Tasmania, with halcyon producers set alongside those that have brought fame to the Apple Isle. It’s great to see such focus on the local wine scene, with by the glass, a neat little staff pick section, back vintage wines and emerging winemakers all celebrated and listed extensively. A feature page on Stefano Lubiana Single Block wines is a tempting highlight, though you'll be leafing through names like Holyman, Pooley, Sailor Seeks Horse and the premium sparkling wines of Tassie with equal lust and vigour. If Tasmania isn’t your quarry, there’s grower Champagne, big name wines from Torbreck, Mount Mary and Moss Wood, with a Penfolds Grange collection of substance likewise found within these pages. Bordeaux is also a feature, with well-priced grand marques and back vintages available. The dessert list is also a clincher. Decidedly, one of northern Tasmania’s best shaped lists.
