Lowestoft

Tasmania | Tasmania

Our Review

The premium Tasmanian brand of WA-based Fogarty Wine Group, Lowestoft is Tasmania’s most exciting new label this year. The group purchased the 3ha Lowestoft vineyard and historic house at Berriedale near Mona just north of Hobart in 2019. Its impressive inaugural release from the same year encompasses sourcing from across southern Tasmania and the Tamar Valley. Substantial plantings on 2 properties at Forcett and Richmond in the Coal River Valley bring the group’s holdings to some 200ha, making this Tasmania’s 2nd-largest vineyard owner. Winemaking is conducted at Tasmanian Vintners, the state’s biggest contract facility, in which the group purchased a 50% share. Lowestoft is a worthy newcomer to Fogarty’s lauded suite of boutique wineries across Western Australia, Lake’s Folly in the Hunter Valley and Dalwhinnie in the Pyrenees. -TYSON STELZER
