Sleek and delicious and kinda funky. Good gear.

About The Wine

The  Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans is a delicious, highly-gluggable version of Pinot Noir built for early drinking.

This wine is made from two different vineyards that Ricky manages. The fruit from these sites is more red fruited and juicy than his more moody and savoury TMV or Dog & Wolf Pinot Noirs. This fruit is primed for this Cru-Beaujolais-inspired style of wine that Ricky loves to make and drink.

This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. Ziggurat is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours.

It's downright delicious.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2019 Ziggurat Pinot Noir is a balancing act between whole bunch carbonic maceration, and whole berry, ferment, with minimal maceration.

50:50 between the styles, attempting to find the balance between spice and sweetness, in a fresh, early drinking style, its Pinot Noir, chasing a Beaujolais style.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Light colour, red and purple jubes to smell and taste. Smattering of herbs through the fresh berried feel. Soft tannins and a fleshy feel for the most part but it tightens through the finish with a hit of redskin flavours to close. Such a yummy 'drinking' style of Pinot. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Crisp pinot noir of strong peppery-herbal detail in dark cherry characters. Perfume and palate match well, and with the latter, the mouth-feel, it’s medium weight and tightened with silty tannins and finishing with a long, minerally trail of flavour. It’s a cool-feeling pinot, sleek and delicious and kinda funky. Good gear." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Very fun, easy drinking wine

Very fragant Pinot Noir with floral scents, candies and berries, thought I was having a glass of Beaujolais really. On the palate I could taste a hint of salty minerality I guess that's a Tassie specialty? A very enjoyable wine at this price, strongly recommend to pair this wine with Asian food!

A fantastic example of Pinot from Tasmania. Juicy and ready to consume. Highly recommended.

Starts off light but then gives you a nice subtle finish which is heavier than first impression. Easy to drink and is perfect for sharing with friends immediately.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?
