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
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.
