10th January 2018. Campbell Mattinson review of 2017 Riesling says...
Riesling for a summer’s day. Or winter’s night. Or for any time, really. This is something of a re-birth for the Elsewhere Vineyard name, and vineyard. The vineyard is now owned by Owen and Eve Knight. This wine is made by Glenn James at Winemaking Tasmania.
I looked at this a few times and loved it at each pass; though each time I saw different flavours. It carries a clear slip of sweetness and has the body to match. Orange peel, lime, pink grapefruit, sweet apple, rosewater even. You could easily and aptly call it ‘exotic’. It has some colour, lots of aroma, lots of flavour, enough of a finish. It’s delicious times ten.

12th January 2018. Campbell Mattinson review of 2016 Pinot Noir says...
Elsewhere Vineyard is back on the map.
It pours on the silk and brings complexity along for the ride. This is pinot noir in seductive mode. Cherries, plums, cedar wood, undergrowth, all conveyed with creamy-smooth mouthfeel. There’s tannin here but it’s under-stated; underneath. Oak plays a fairly keen role but a positive one. Lovely wine. Well packaged too. Take it anywhere.

Elsewhere Vineyard a name to watch in Tasmania
Elsewhere Vineyard, tucked away in the deep south of the Huon Valley, overlooking the sleepy Huon River - is a name to watch among the rising stars of Tasmanian wine.
The vineyard has been through several incarnations but is undergoing a revival under new owner Owen Knight, who has put a lot of work into the vines and had striking new labels designed. The first six hectares of vines were planted in 1984, with another four hectares planted between 2003 and 2005.
The Elsewhere vineyards grow pinot noir (the region's standout), chardonnay, riesling and gewurztraminer - and the 2017 aromatic whites are standouts, the riesling crisp and linear, the gewurz impressively varietal. Impressive work from Winemaking Tasmania.
Neighbouring vineyards include Jim Chatto's Isle vineyard, Sailor Seeks Horse and Stefano Lubiana's Panorama vineyards, so all the signs are good.
All the wines are dry grown and made exclusively from estate fruit. The cellar door is open Friday-Sunday, or ring ahead for an appointment.
