Wine Tasting at Pressing Matters

Pressing Matters, nestled in the picturesque Coal River Valley of Tasmania, is a winery that has garnered attention for its dedicated approach to viticulture and winemaking. Founded on the principle of minimal intervention, the winery has established itself as a guardian of the fruit, ensuring that each step of the winemaking process—from the vineyard to the bottle—highlights the inherent qualities of their cool-climate varieties. With a focus on Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, Pressing Matters crafts wines that are a pure expression of their unique terroir, characterised by the complex soils formed from Jurassic dolerite and overlain by basalt, enriching the vines with essential minerals for quality wine production.

Winemaker Samantha Connew and viticulturist Mark Hoey lead the team with a philosophy centred on 'not stuffing it up,' a candid acknowledgment of their role as stewards rather than manipulators of the vineyard's bounty. This approach has resulted in a portfolio of wines that are vibrant, fresh, and reflective of the rich, alkaline clay-silty soils of their vineyard, offering wine enthusiasts a genuine taste of Tasmania's Coal River Valley.
