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

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.

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.

Blend : Riesling (100%)
ABV : 12.00%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2027

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)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
