About The Wine
The Dog & Wolf Pinot Noir is Ricky's pride and joy.
Inspired by the French expression ‘entre chien et loup’, it translates to ‘between dog and wolf’, a reference to the time of day when it is hardest to distinguish between the two creatures, just as day becomes night. He wants this Pinot Noir to walk that line. The line between wild and tame, between ferocious and approachable, raw and refined.
The wine is made in two parcels - the first picked early and made in a more traditional style, the second fermented as 100% whole bunches for a little more nervy edge and structural integrity. There's only a tiny amount in existence, each bottle lovingly tended to every step of the way.
It's a gorgeous wine which perfectly captures the imagery of the name; a thrilling Pinot Noir experience.
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 sought-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.
