Domaine Simha, Tasmania

 

"Domaine Simha Pinot Noir was rated as one of the top 10 in the world and equivalent to some of the premium Pinot Noirs from Burgundy"

 

The man behind Domaine Simha is Nav Singh who, with his wife Louise produce a range of wines that are some of the most hotly anticipated to be coming out of Tasmania at the moment. When tasted by the world’s 50 top sommeliers, Domaine Simha Pinot Noir was rated as one of the top 10 in the world and equivalent to some of the premium Pinot Noirs from Burgundy that they have been pouring for many years. The Simha wines are now poured in some of the best restaurant across the world and allocations are very hard to come by.

Nav is also the winemaker who developed much of his talents working at Burgundy‘s De L’Arlot in Nuits St Georges, the highly prestigious Chateau Le Pin and Vieux Chateau Certain in Pomerol and Chateau d’Yquem, Domaine Chandon as well as five years spent at Moss Brothers in Margaret River. Nav also has a host of qualifications which include both Viticulture and Oenology certificates from the University of Adelaide.

Nav believes in a natural approach to winemaking, following biodynamic principles, paying careful attention to the harvesting dates, whole bunch and wild fermentations only using naturally occurring yeasts, basket pressing and bottling his wines unfined and unfiltered for purity and texture. The wines are made in tiny quantities and Nav works in micro batches, making just 2 to 3 barrels to ensure the wines are produced at the highest possible level of quality.

Nav and Louise spent time searching for single vineyards in which to source fruit from and have partnered with several growers based in the Upper Derwent Valley, Coal River and Huon Valley, whom they work closely with to ensure only the finest fruit is used for their micro batch wines. Their aim is to reflect through their wines, the Tasmanian terroir and have managed to achieve this through minimal winemaking in crafting individual, single vineyard expressions.

Domaine Simha are creating a real buzz in the Australian as well as the international wine scene, their wines in demand among the worlds top sommeliers in some of the best restaurant but until now, were not represented in the UK. We are over the moon to have partnered with such an exciting winery and bring them exclusively to the UK.
