Who we are
Cool Wine ? As an independent retailer, we offer specialist advice and a
wide range of quality wines and boutique beers from all corners of the globe.
Making the most of our location in central Hobart, we also have the good
fortune of being able to draw an impressive selection from the finest local
producers throughout Tasmania, from both niche and icon wineries.
Whether regional or international, our stock has to earn its place on the
shelf. With over 25 years in the wine industry, co-owner Tim Goddard brings
experience and tenure as a qualified wine judge as the head of a select tasting
panel, ensuring that our range will always stand out from the crowd. This
guarantees that our products satisfy a rigorous tasting assessment, in which
variety, style, and region are considered, alongside the imperative that
they represent best value for money.
With competitive freight prices, our dedication to bringing customers together
with quality products is made just that little bit easier, and we pride ourselves
on fast, friendly, and efficient service.
Our wine may be cool, but our passion for it is anything but!

Highly recommended wines from our tasting panel.
You can email us to order any of these wines.
Frogmore Creek 2012 Fume Blanc - Tasmania
A deft touch of oak giving this still crisp Sauvignon Blanc some smart texture. Exciting to drink now. Match with Bruny oysters.
$ 25.50 each
Pinot Mixed Dozen - Tasmania
A swag of excellent new Pinots arriving soon, all bursting with fruit from the ideal, warm conditions of the 2012 vintage. In the meantime, there remain some excellent Pinots from older vintages that are drinking delightfully and will continue to cellar 3-6 years hence.
Richard Meyman 2010 'Bersenbruck' Pinot Noir
A satisfying degree of palate weight, yet maintains the subtlety of the Tasmanian Style, and delightful drinking. A mix of fruit from the Derwent and Coal River Valleys.
Winstead 2009 'Lot 7' Pinot Noir
We've always liked this 'Lot 7'. A combination of vine age and the Bagdad terroir perhaps. Not sure, but it delivers in any case.
Sugar Loaf 2008 Pinot Noir
We've had resoundingly positive feedback on this relatively unknown entry from the Carlton River area. From a warm year, it's drinking superbly now.
Third Child 2009 'Benjamin Daniel' Pinot Noir
Last stocks of this generous single-site Pinot hailing from the Tea Tree area. Holding its cherry/bramble fruit and warm mouthfeel nicely.
Mixed dozen includes three bottles of each wine, with free delivery within Tasmania and just $11 for interstate freight.
$ 350.00 each
Apsley Gorge 2009 Pinot Noir - Tasmania
An arresting new vintage from cult East Coast producer Brian Franklin. Serious layers of fruit with the Apsley 'French touch' all over it. Super-intense, weighty with a lacquering, lengthy finish.
$ 57.95 each
Great freight rates, Australia wide. Email: Shop@coolwine.com.au
