Tasmanian wine is perennially cool. European-influenced in a good way. Quintessentially Australian, too.
This alone should be enough to get you on a plane or a ferry or a row boat to the Apple Isle. However, if you need further convincing, please give it up for the gastronomical stylings of the island state revered internationally.
In fact, revered for a lot of reasons – in equal measures for its exquisite natural environment, sophistication of winemaking, pure produce, decadence of architecture – both modern and historical – and for its enchanting people ready to warmly welcome you to their cellar doors.
Don’t even bother claiming to be a pinot noir or sparkling aficionado unless you’ve been to Tassie.
