Moore's Hill Estate is a boutique, family-operated wine producer located in the beautiful Tamar Valley in Tasmania, Australia. We take great pride in our specialty — estate grown, single vineyard wines of outstanding depth, quality and personality.
Our small vineyard is located on a beautiful northeast-facing hillside near the sleepy town of Exeter in the Tamar Valley. Established in 1997, Moores Hill is an ideal location to plant grapes. The site is at 120m above sea level and is part of a ridge system that rings the valley floor below giving the site good aspect, elevation and drainage. As the crow flies we are 5 km from the Tamar River and 30 km from Bass Strait making us one of the coolest sites on the West Tamar - ideal for the slow and gentle ripening of our precious grapes.
Tasmania possesses some of Australia’s true cool to cold climate wine regions. Moore's Hill, situated in the West Tamar region produces wines that reflect our unique climate. Our winters are cold summers mild and our site experiences approximately 1150 heat degree days and around 700mm annual rainfall.
Each block in our immaculately kept vineyard has a very specific microclimate that produces distinctive wines with personality and character.
We have the advantage of soil banks that retain just enough residual heat even in the coldest conditions that we have never yet suffered from frost - touch wood! Our site yields a truly magical combination of aspect, soil type and microclimate allowing our fruit to ripen slowly and evenly yielding wines of exceptional quality.
Our aim is to make wines of distinction and quality reflecting the unique terroir of our site. We make no compromises to quality both in the vineyard and in the winemaking process.
Our signature wine is our Riesling which has won numerous accolades over several years. In recent times, our Pinot Noir has started to collect awards and high scores. But across our range- from elegant Sparkling to cheeky Rose and Sweet Riesling, our wines rank highly on what matters most: all-round drinkability.
