2018 Two Tonne Tasmania Ziggurat Pinot Noir
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.Read more about 2018 Two Tonne Tasmania Ziggurat Pinot Noir
2017 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir
Barney Flanders loves Pinot Noir, and his 2017 release of the value-packed Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir is another home run.
Made from a blend of fruit from Barney's outstanding single vineyards, with the best fruit from the Teurong and Balnarring Single Vineyard wines making their way into the blend this year. This represents the essence of Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noir.
No whole bunches here and the emphasis is definitely on ripe Pinot fruit, showcasing the impeccable vineyard management and winemaking of this Mornington guru.
It's unfined and unfiltered, with plenty of savoury complexity to balance the finish.
Value for money wise, this is an Australian Pinot Noir star.Read more about 2017 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir
