Wine Tasting at Moorilla

Moorilla, nestled within the vibrant arts precinct of Berriedale, Tasmania, represents the fusion of winemaking tradition and contemporary art. Under the stewardship of winemaker Conour van der Reest, Moorilla has been reinvigorated to produce wines that are a true expression of Tasmania's unique terroir. Conour, a seasoned winemaker with experience across the globe, from Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula to Languedoc and Champagne in France, brings a nuanced approach to crafting wines at Moorilla. His philosophy centres on creating wines that balance new-world fruit with old-world complexity, aiming to capture the essence of Moorilla's vineyard - from its ancient soils to its cool-climate fruit - in each bottle. The result is a range of wines, including sparkling white, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Noir, that are not only reflective of Tasmania's premier wine region but also stand as a testament to Moorilla's commitment to excellence.

Since its acquisition by David Walsh, Moorilla has established itself as a leader in Tasmania's wine scene, continually pushing the boundaries of winemaking to produce "rich and strange liquid" that delights and challenges the palate. This commitment to innovation and quality ensures that Moorilla remains at the forefront of Tasmania's cool-climate winemaking, offering a diverse portfolio that appeals to a broad spectrum of wine enthusiasts.
