Travis Tausend’s vines grow at the very Southern tip of the Adelaide Hills in a small community called Hope Forest. The original carers and traditional owners of this land are the Perimangk people. The soils here are varied but the vines put their roots into mostly clay, sand and ironstone based soils. The vineyard is planted on several slopes but mostly make use of a North-East aspect with exception to the merlot which faces the North-West.
Being in a raised valley that is cooled by two winds, the hot days experienced by the regions surrounding are mitigated by the Southern ocean wind and the gulf breeze, making the micro climate one of the coolest in the Adelaide Hills. Because of this beautiful flow of air, there are pockets of noble rot in the vineyard that Travis uses to add another layer to his riesling and sauvignon blanc.
Travis Tausend wines contain no added sulphites at any stage.
Pinot Noir from Peramangk Country, Adelaide Hills South Australia. The wine is made from the same part of the vineyard each year because it is the part of the vineyard that ripens first. A blend of 2 clones of Pinot Noir i.e., MV6 and D5V12, the grapes are hand picked and treated as part whole bunch and part de-stemmed fruit, fermented on skins for a week before being pressed to 2 x 500L barrels for the rest of fermentation and elevage. This is a light pinot with lots of red berry juicy characters
