About
Sleek and delicious and kinda funky. Good gear.

Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

The  Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans is a delicious, highly-gluggable version of Pinot Noir built for early drinking.

This wine is made from two different vineyards that Ricky manages. The fruit from these sites is more red fruited and juicy than his more moody and savoury TMV or Dog & Wolf Pinot Noirs. This fruit is primed for this Cru-Beaujolais-inspired style of wine that Ricky loves to make and drink.

This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. Ziggurat is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours.

It's downright delicious.

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.

From The Producer

The 2019 Ziggurat Pinot Noir is a balancing act between whole bunch carbonic maceration, and whole berry, ferment, with minimal maceration.

50:50 between the styles, attempting to find the balance between spice and sweetness, in a fresh, early drinking style, its Pinot Noir, chasing a Beaujolais style.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Light colour, red and purple jubes to smell and taste. Smattering of herbs through the fresh berried feel. Soft tannins and a fleshy feel for the most part but it tightens through the finish with a hit of redskin flavours to close. Such a yummy 'drinking' style of Pinot. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Crisp pinot noir of strong peppery-herbal detail in dark cherry characters. Perfume and palate match well, and with the latter, the mouth-feel, it’s medium weight and tightened with silty tannins and finishing with a long, minerally trail of flavour. It’s a cool-feeling pinot, sleek and delicious and kinda funky. Good gear." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Exceptional depth

This pinot delivers with complexity and length. As a reluctant drinker of young Pinot this had great body weight depth and complexity well done 👍

Ziggurat Stardust !

I got this as part of the Pinot Noir six pack and have since reordered this particular wine. It' s beyond lovely. Soft but with some body. I think it's very good value for the quality on offer - $29 but tastes like $36. A crude economic measure for sure which doesn't to do this wine justice. You will plow through a six pack in about 10 days

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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.
