Outstanding wine. Ever so complex.
About The Wine
A hidden gem of the Apple Isle, the Small Island Wines are making plenty of noise with only a small range.
This is their single site Pinot Noir from the Glen Garry vineyard in the North of the island. Focused, intense and brooding, this is a Pinot Noir with a lot of charisma.
Oak set decidedly to the background, the fruit from this excellent vineyard front and centre. In Campbell Mattinson's 94+ point review, he dubbed it, "an exciting wine."
Only 72 dozen made.
About Small Island Wines
Small Island Wines is a mirco-batch Tasmanian wine company founded by James Broinowski in 2015 after raising the money to launch his brand via a successful crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter.
James focuses his time on producing Pinot Noir with regional accents from around Tasmania, with a little Rosé and Riesling being made as well.
The wines have received quite a lot of press in only a short amount of time. James Halliday wrote, "It looks very much like a potential acorn to oak story, for the quality of the wines is seriously good." after trying only the first release from 2015.
Since then, James hasn't looked back.
