Australia's best Blanc des Blancs

Clover Hill was highly awarded in the recently released Tyson Stelzer’s 2017 Australian Sparkling Report.

The Report is a comprehensive review and acknowledges the finest sparkling wine producers of the year. Clover Hill is one of the top 3 wineries in the ‘Hall of Honour’ with a six-star rating. With the whole Clover portfolio awarded, scoring five wines over 90 points, this is a true testament to Clover Hill's uncompromising quality, elegance, and commitment to excellence.


Within the Australian Sparkling Report, the ‘Clover Hill Cuvée Prestige Late Disgorged Blanc de Blancs 2005’ was named 2017 Blanc de Blancs of the year with 96 points, and the Clover Hill Cuvée Exceptionnelle Blanc de Blancs 2010 the direct runner-up with 95 points.

Established in 1986 on the site of a former dairy farm in Pipers River, North-Eastern Tasmania — Clover Hill’s rich land was a mosaic of rolling hills and golden clover. With cool-climate conditions and its ancient, volcanic red soil, the 66-hectare site was selected as an ideal location to produce quality vintage sparkling wine.

Clover Hill’s award-winning wines have garnered critical acclaim among the royal family in the UK, even being served at the wedding of Princess Mary in Denmark.

The experience and dedication of the Clover Hill winemaking team has resulted in accolades and high scores across each vintage, and Tyson Stelzer’s now acclaimed ‘Best Blanc de Blancs’ in Australia.
