TAS Country : September 2nd 2010
26 Tasmanian Country Friday, September 3, 2010 Rural property Prize-winning vines just a small start ESTABLISHED in 1988 on the banks of Pipers Brook in North-East Tasmania, Brook Eden is nestled in a picturesque valley of roll- ing green hills. The vineyards are sited along an ancient ridge of deep, gravelly, well-drained volcanic soil that runs down to Pipers Brook on one side of the ridge and a spring-fed native wetland on the other. The 2.2ha vineyard is planted to pinot noir, ries- ling, chardonnay and pinot gris. An extra 5ha has been identified as ideal north- facing country. After a record dry spell in 2006-07, a dam rebuild- ing program started to store more water for vineyard expansion and to benefit flora and fauna through the creation of wetlands and island safe havens for aquatic species. Brook Eden has enjoyed a great deal of wine show success, winning two tro- phies and 65 medals at national and international wine shows in the past four years. Its 2008 riesling scored bronze at the Inter- national Riesling Challenge, and the 2009 TRS Riesling won gold at the National Cool Climate Show. Capital improvements at Brook Eden include a com- fortable home on the brow of an east-facing hill over- looking trellised vines. This timber-clad and framed house contains two large living areas, three bedrooms, an office and recently renovated kitchen and bathroom areas. New terracotta tiles are earthy colours and match the bare original timber floorboards. Alarge9mx4mdeck with a pergola has an easterly aspect. The work areas of this family-run vineyard are conveniently positioned close to the back door. A kitchen herb garden stands between the house and the cellar door tasting room, which is part of the wine storage and farm im- plement shed. This struc- ture is clad sympatheti- cally in vertical timber board and is modern in function and form. Fencing on Brook Eden is nearly all new and is constructed of modern, high-quality materials. Boundary and internal paddock fences are six-line plain wire, two-wire elec- trified, while the Pipers Brook, which flows through the farm, is fenced with vermin- and game- proof Ring Lock wire. There is also a small olive grove producing fruit for oil. Beef cattle graze the bulk of Brook Eden's 61ha, but alternative land use could lend itself to high-value horticultural crops such as olives and blueberries.
