The 42° South range of wines is intended to be fruit-driven and 'food-friendly' in style without being too intellectual or challenging. Our fruit selection, from different vineyard sites around Tasmania, and straight-forward, down-to-earth winemaking techniques are aimed at producing wines with clear and characteristic varietal fruit flavours.

Food suggestions: Almost anything!
