About The Wine

Nick Glaetzer has had a dream run since moving to Tasmania, winning a stack of awards and winning plenty of fans. With excellent value releases like this excellent 2017 vintage Pinot Noir, it's no wonder.

As the demand for Pinot Noir fruit rises to breaking point in Tasmania, $30 Pinot Noir is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Nick has turned out an absolute beauty here. A craftsman at work with the help of one of the best Tasmanian vintages in recent memory.

Campbell Mattinson awarded this vintage an impressive 93 points. If you love Pinot Noir from the Apple Isle, you'll have to look hard to find a better buy.

About Glaetzer-Dixon

Campbell Mattinson has described Glaetzer-Dixon as “One of the most exciting producers in the country.”

Nick Glaetzer represents the next generation of Tasmanian winemaking who are taking a fresh look at what the region can produce.

The Wine Front

"This is an impressive wine, from an impressive producer. Excellent varietal character including a hearty sling of flavour through the finish, as is the way of the better examples. This pinot noir is blessed as much with confidence as it is with length, its sour-smoky fruits littered with sweet herb and orange rind notes, a whisper of reduction not hurting matters at all. A dry, structural, fruit-pulsed finish makes for a beautiful exit. Quality and value are both on offer here." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
