Domaine A, Tasmania

Domaine A is the jewel in the crown of the Tasmanian wine industry.

Cult winemaker Peter Althaus makes a wine described by James Halliday as 'the finest wooded Sauvignon Blanc in the world', Anthony Foster MW insists his wines 'must be rated along with the very best in the world' and Matthew Jukes says he has 'never been so gob-smacked with a range of wines' in his life.

On an island mainly dominated by Pinot, Peter bucks the trend producing what Max Allen believes to be Australia's top Cabernet from the Coal River region in Southern Tasmania. Excelling where others have failed, with meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard, this doyen of Cabernet produces tiny allocations of wines which are truly world class. 

Peter Althaus personally selects the fruit for harvesting. During the cool days of Autumn when the fruit is at the point of optimum ripeness and flavour it is hand-picked and crafted with minimal intervention. The wines are made without compromise in the spirit of the finest traditions of winemaking.
