About The Wine
Ricky Evans tackles Amber wines for the first time in this release.
If you're looking for a good entry into the style, a wine to test the cloudy waters of orange/skin contact winemaking, this will serve you well.
It's a very approachable version of the style. The blend is comprised of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay - an interesting blend for these kind of wines.
Riesling brings the acid and drive as well as crunchy citrus and green apple notes, Gewurztraminer brings the wild, intoxicating aromatics and Chardonnay lends a softness and milkyness in the mid palate - it's a very friendly combination
Ricky is an obsessive and incisive winemaker. He never does things by halves. His first foray into orange wines is a great sucess.
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.
