About The Pack
The meteoric rise in popularity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir is one of the hottest trends in Australian wine right now.
Our most southern state can't produce enough to keep up with demand - as such we've seen prices for Tassie Pinot rise and rise over the last few years.
But there are a few dead-set bargains still available from the Apple Isle if you know where to look. This delicious mixed pack of six Pinot Noirs from all over the state is the perfect way to get a taste of Tassie with busting the bank!
2021 Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir
As the demand for fruit in Tasmania increases, so too are the prices. The top value Pinot Noirs are becoming rare as hens' teeth, but here's one that you can fill your boots with if you want a stylish Tassie Pinot that won't bust the bank.
This is fruit from the Coal River, Derwent and Tamar Valleys fermented in small batches in a bunch of different ways. Some whole bunch, some whole berry, lots of experimenting from winemaker Jonathan Hughes to see what works, then finally a blend of the best parts.
It's a great drink and remarkable value. There just aren't many Pinots at this price from the Apple Isle that will deliver the interest and satisfaction of the Hughes & Hughes.
The perfect mid-week Tasmanian Pinot Noir.Read more about 2021 Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir
2020 Holm Oak Pinot Noir
Vintage after vintage, Holm Oak produces some of the best value for money Pinot Noirs in Australia. You simply cannot help but admire how much flavour and vivacity it packs in such a delicate number. It has moxie. It's the Little Engine That Could.
So, so pale in the glass. There is something about it which is just immediately enticing. Maybe it's the fragrance coming from the wine, maybe it's the knowledge that this is only the tip of the iceberg. But the second you taste it you're utterly whisked away. It's very much a dancer, with delicate flavours of berries, spice and herbs flitting hither and thither. You can't help but smile.Read more about 2020 Holm Oak Pinot Noir
