As 42˚S is the central latitude of Tasmania this name reflects our position in crafting fruit-driven wines from grapes sourced from throughout the state. The island state hosts several unique viticultural sub-regions, each area performing differently to climatic variations over the vintages. This wide-ranging scope in grape supply allows us to make outstanding Tasmanian wines every year.

Fresh and attractive aromas. The palate show some great minerality with touch of pepper.
Crisp and Zippy in the finish.


We had a lot of rain during winter (August-October), the soil was extremely wet and cold up to November.
At flowering, the temperatures were in the mid-tens; not hot enough to warm up the soil and make the pollination happening. Flowering took 5 weeks and resulted in 40-50% hen and chicken berries (small berries, non pollinated).

From mid-December to mid-February, the summer temperatures went from15 to 25˚C.

Vintage started end of March for sparkling. The maturation of the grapes was slow with high acidity. We finished picking the late grapes second week of May. It was the latest vintage for the last 20 years.


Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc, sustainably grown
Region: 100% Coal River valley, Southern Tasmania
Yield: 6-7 tonnes per hectare

Pressed and De-juiced with only slight pressure prior to cold-settling overnight. Racked into a stainless steel tank for inoculated ferment, controlled at 18-20˚C. Kept on ferment lees for eight weeks to fill palate structure, then cold stabilised before filtration.

Bottled the 28.06.2022
