Ziggurat spring wines are produced with a simple philosophy in mind. They are adventurous in winemaking style, creative and unique each year, but above all, they are fresh and textural.
About The Wine
A different take on Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans in 2017.
For his lively 'nouveau' styled Pinot Noir, in the past, Ricky has played around with adding the skins of aromatic whites to the ferment. Things didn't quite pan out that way in 2017.
Instead, Ricky went hunting for a top-tier-Beaujolais style of wine. And he found it in a patch of fruit at the bottom of the hill from one of his Pinot Noir blocks.
This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. This is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours. It's downright delicious.
About Two Tonne Tasmania
Two Tonne Tasmania is the brainchild of Ricky Evens. With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky’s approach is all about growing pristine, healthy fruit, harvesting at the right time, and then having to do as little as possible in the winery thereafter.
Since his serendipitous entry into the much sort after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, his first few releases have made quite a few waves. Pinot Noir is Ricky’s game, and he plays hard-ball. And his Rieslings and Chardonnays are excellent regional examples which showcase the purity and elegance of modern Tasmanian wine.
