About The Wine
Shiraz and Malbec may sound like a boisterous combination but not when the fruit comes from the cool climes of Tasmania's Tamar Valley and the wine is made with the light touch of Ricky Evans.
This is pretty, fragrant, and lifted with violets and blue fruit. There is some bright Malbec spice on the palate and the kind of lacy tannin that only great shiraz will give you. It's a delicious wine but also a contemplative one.
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.
