Tasting Notes
At Jasper Hill, Ron Laughton's ever-enquiring mind led him to plant one hectare of Nebbiolo vines in their Georgia's Paddock block in the 1990s. As with his Shiraz, the Nebbiolo displays and elegance and delicacy that is more commonly associated with Old World wines.

Jasper Hill (Ron & Elva Laughton)

In 1975, former food scientist Ron Laughton and his wife Elva created their Jasper Hill estate in Heathcote, Victoria (70 miles north of Melbourne), drawn by the region’s distinctive geology, namely an iron-rich seam of Cambrian clay on which the vineyards are strategically located. Today the Laughton’s world-renowned, bio-dynamically farmed, 20-hectare estate is widely regarded as being some of the finest terroir in Australia.

Jasper Hill produces six wines from three individual vineyards. While the single estate 'Emily’s Paddock' Shiraz / Cabernet Franc and 'Georgia’s Paddock' Shiraz (first vintage 1982) are the best known wines, Jasper Hill also makes a 'Georgia’s Paddock' Semillon, 'Georgia’s Paddock' Riesling (first vintage 1984) and 'Georgia’s Paddock' Nebbiolo. Cornella Grenache is a recent addition to the Jasper Hill portfolio.

Ron and Elva are today assisted by their daughter, Emily, who makes the 'Occam’s Razor' Shiraz in her own right, and the family are also involved in a joint venture with fellow organic enthusiast Michel Chapoutier, which yields the ‘La Pleiade’ Shiraz.
