AVANT-GARDE TASMANIAN WINE
With an impressive background in fine wine, Nav Singh and Louise Radman came to Tasmania and established Domaine Simha in 2012. In a few short years the young couple brought new heights to Tasmania’s wine offerings with their avant-garde approach, having hunted down some magical growing sites in the Derwent Valley.
At the heart of each Domaine Simha wine is Tasmania’s pristine environment, sparkling air and ancient soil. Long, sunny days and a cold climate produce graceful styles with the perfume, structure and superb ageing potential that are foundations of exceptional wine. According to Nav and Louise, Tasmania is the ultimate terroir. The couple is convinced there is nowhere else in the world that can match it.
‘The quality and subtlety we strive for can only be achieved naturally in very few places,’ says Nav. ‘Tasmania is Australia’s final frontier and the advantages we have are unparalleled. Making wine here is like standing on the brink of a new world where everything is possible.’
Crafted by hand in micro batches, a limited number of Domaine Simha wines are made each season. Their approach centers on living wine relying on ancient knowledge and intuition. Methods embrace harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days, whole bunch wild fermentation with traditional foot pigeage, maturation in custom demi-muid oak and clay amphorae with perfect natural balance.
Domaine Simha offers a powerful proposition of authenticity that is highly sought by collectors and sommeliers in top venues across Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
