About The Wine

Riesling from the Tamar Valley here (TMV) from young, explosive winemaker, Ricky Evans.

This is a tightly coiled and refined Riesling of streamlined fruit character and finesse. A smidge of residual sugar gives this a lovely balance in the mouth, making it brilliant to drink immediately, though a sleep in the cellar is also a fine option.

Ricky continues to impress, a rising star of the Tasmanian wine scene and one to keep a close eye on. If you love Riesling from cooler climes, this is absoloutely worth a look.

About Two Tonne Tasmania

With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky Evans' thoughtful winemaking approach has seen his southern star rise rapidly with a swag of accolades in a relatively short time.

Since his serendipitous entry into the much saught after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, he has garnered a reputation for producing some of Tasmania's most exciting and hard-to-get small batch wines.

Pinot Noir is Ricky’s main game, and he plays hardball. His Pinots show brilliant light and shade. A gentle touch in the winery allows fruit and vineyard to shine - a theme that carries through his excellent regional examples of Riesling and Chardonnay.

The wines of TTT typify the purity and elegance of modern Tasmania.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Slicing limes and tart green apples, white flowers in bloom and some crazy pot pouri aromas. It's a slipstream Riesling of finesse and fine balance. Crisp, cool, drinking beautifully ow but should unwind terrifically in the bottle given some time. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"This one comes from half/half Three Wishes vineyard (just near the Batman Bridge on the Tamar River) and half comes from Native Point-Swan Bay. Sits at about 11.5 grams residual but is beautifully balanced. A stellar release from Tassie talent Ricky (Bobby) Evans.  Whoa. This is a great riesling. The key points are texture and perfectly judged sweetness that lends character but feels drier than what it is. It kicks off with brilliant, vibrant scents of lime, talc, general mineral things and faint candied citrus. The palate is limey but tight as, licked at by that candied citrus and crystalline, zingy, brisk acidity and the faintest oatmeal-yeasty note. Complex, delicious, epic in length, generally outstanding to drink. Yikes." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Very addictive

This one is a touch off-dry and so easy/addictive to drink. It's my go-to Riesling at the moment. Highly recommended.

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
