Wine

Wine is made under the GlenAyr label only in years when the quality of fruit is suitable for making our top premium wines.

Wines of all varieties are not made every year due to the high standard and low volume nature of our wine business.

At GlenAyr we make Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & sparkling Pinot/Chardonnay. We also make smaller quantities in certain years of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and cool climate Shiraz.

The vines for these wines are the oldest in the Coal River Valley and amongst the oldest in Tasmania.
