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.

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

Additional Info

From The Producer

In 2017, an opportunity to experiment with white grape skins, or cofermentation didn’t present. This was apparent early in the season, so my thoughts moved towards honing in on a style of winemaking I use frequently, but still attempting to master-carbonic maceration.

Chasing a style reminiscent of quality Beaujolais, I eyed off the bottom part of one of my patches of Pinot, in Relbia, which had variation I thought would suit the style. 10 days of traditional carbonic maceration, untouched, then opened up and whole bunch pressed, this wine hit old oak at 4 Baume and then rolled through naturally.

The wine sat on lees for another 3 months before clean racking, then bottling without fining or filtration. *very limited, so don’t hesitate.
