Abel Tasman is our flagship wine label. Crafted from carefully selected Bangor vines and matured in French oak, Abel Tasman is an elegant, full-bodied Pinot Noir. The savoury complexity of this wine will develop further with careful cellaring over the next 5-10 years.
Tasman Bay, on Bangor's northern coastline, is the site where Abel Tasman planted the Dutch flag on December 3rd, 1642. We have named this wine in honour of Abel Tasman and the beautiful island that would come to bear his name. Read more about Abel Tasman here.
Jimmy's Hill is a true, cool climate Pinot Gris, handpicked from Bangor vineyard. Our vineyard is in the ideal spot for growing premium quality Tasmanian Pinot Gris, with rich, full and interesting flavours, guaranteed to delight. We make 2 styles of Pinot Gris, a traditional bright and fruity style, and a Reserve Pinot Gris that is gently aged in old oak. The Reserve Pinot Gris is very limited release and sells out quickly.
Pinot Gris can be enjoyed on its own, and is also a wonderful food wine. With fresh fruity characters and a lovely glossy texture, it pairs beautifully with a wide range of fish, shellfish, white meats, salads and cheeses.
Rising a commanding 1002 ft, Jimmy's Hill is Bangor's highest point and one of Tasmania's convict era semaphore stations. With a simple hut for shelter, Jimmy, the rugged bushman who called the remote outpost home, maintained a vigilant eye on adjacent stations, standing by to relay messages.

1830 is a cool climate Tasmanian Chardonnay crafted from Bangor's premium hand-picked fruit. Matured in French Oak, 1830 is an enjoyable blend of rich stone fruit characters and fresh citrus flavours, with subtle notes of vanilla. Chardonnay is another classic food wine, pairing beautifully with seafood, white meats and soft cheeses.
In 1830 John Dunbabin, convicted of horse stealing, was transported to Van Diemen's Land. Having narrowly escaped the hangman's noose, he was determined to make the most of his opportunities. Through sheer hard work, John earned his freedom and bought his own land, paving the way for five generations of farming at Bangor. Read more about 1830 and John Dunbabin here.
