Domaine Simha Pinot Noirs
Winery : Domaine Simha
Domaine Simha is already considered one of Tasmania's 'avant garde' producers after barely 3 vintages. It was founded by winemaker Nav Singh - experience at Mountadam, Dom de L'Arlot, Le Pin/Vieux Chateau Certan - and Somm/journalist/marketer Louise Radman.
Nav Singh explains Domaine Simha's non-interventionist/au natural way of doing things as a matter of 'letting the wines come to us'. He could easily grab the 'natural wine' banner, that is so currently fashionable, but focuses instead on revealing the nuances and idiosyncrasies of each season and plot of land as they are. Singh/Radman work very closely with growers in the Derwent, Coal and Huon Valleys.
2018 Domaine Simha RAMA Pinot Noir: A profound expression of pinot. Sinewy tannins, layers of fine fruit but muscular too. Crunchy acidity at the end, savoury. From a plot of 32 year old vines.
