About The Wine
This is the top Chardonnay from one of Tasmania's hottest young winemakers.
Ricky Evans has nailed his third Dog & Wolf Chardonnay. This fruit was whole bunch pressed to barrel for a natural ferment with partial malo occuring in oak.
Ricky blends two sites for this wine: Waverly to the east of Launceston and Three Wishes in the East Tamar. One picked earlier for bracing acidity, the other picked later to get the right balance of full flavour.
The finished wine is a legitimate cool climate Chardonnay, showing oyster shell, white fruits and flowers and pure acidity. Two Tonne Tasmania is quickly becoming one of the Apple Isle's most sought-after labels. These limited release wines under the Dog & Wolf label fly out the door quicker every year.
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 sort 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.
