About The Wine
The STH (South) Pinot Noir is the final piece of the Two Tonne Tasmania sub-regional Pinot Noir puzzle.
Ricky sourced parcels of fruit from three different sites - Nocton and Brinktop in the Coal River Valley, and Kinvarra in the Derwent Valley. He uses 30% whole bunches, giving a lovely spice and balance to the ripe mature fruit from the Nocton vineyard.
Of the three excellent sub-regional Pinots in Ricky's range, this is the biggest, darkest and plushest of the bunch. It's also the most limited, so get in quick.
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.
