More Information

The key to this wine is the terroir of the Apogee Vineyard in northern Tasmania. The soil type is ferrosol, an acidic basalt-derived soil, which has a deep, porous and well-drained clay-based profile. The climate at Apogee, on average, is as cool as Champagne (Apogee GST (average growing season temp) is 14.5⁰C, similar to Ay and Damery in Champagne, which are at the warmer end of that district.


Apogee has an aridity index of -50 mm, which indicates that growing season moisture conditions are in surplus, another climate feature common with Champagne.

Apogee is seeking not only to match ordinary Champagne but is also striving to emulate Deluxe Cuvées by nuancing all the vineyard quality factors with carefully chosen winemaking methods destined to enhance quality and complexity.  Winemaking interventions such as the use of oak in primary fermentation and aged wine in liqueurs are a choice not available for mass-produced Champagne.
