About The Wine

This is the first release of a TMV (Tamar Valley) Riesling from young, explosive winemaker, Ricky Evans.

This is a tightly coiled and refined Riesling of streamlined fruit character and finesse. A smidge of residual sugar gives this a lovely balance in the mouth, making it brilliant to drink immediately, though a sleep in the cellar is also a fine option.

Ricky continues to impress, a rising star of the Tasmanian wine scene and one to keep a close eye on. If you love Riesling from cooler climes, his is absoloutely worth a look.

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

The Wine Front

"Quite intense as riesling goes. Teeth-chattering acidity in the best possible way, all grapefruit, just ripe green apple and talc-mineral-like in its charm. The finish curls into a gentle slick of sweeter apply character, a nice finish to a wine that races across the palate with a breathless, revitalising feel. Acid heads will love the style, those seeking a shy off-dry style will love the style. Straight between the posts." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

From a warmer site than the Ziggurat Riesling, this was sourced from Swan Bay. A cool season ended with a little ‘Indian Summer’, where the mild and dry weather allowed this parcel to ripen slowly and evenly, with natural balanced acidity.

Fruit was destemmed, and pressed slowly in a long and gentle program, only free run juice was taken for this cuvee. Cold and slow ferment on light solids, ferment was arrested at 6.5g/L Residual Sugar to find balance. Bottled August 2017, unfined.

Fragrant with rich lime, custard apple, lemon rind, salty nuance, soft talc. Green apple, spiced lime juice and just-talc driven texture, this wine should reward long term cellaring in good conditions.
