2015 Shiny Pinot Noir: SOLD OUT Fruit for Shiny Pinot is in fact from the 'Silk Hill' vineyard. Really pretty perfume (aided by 30% whole bunch) - rose petals and bath powder here, and then a more intense hit of raspberry and fresh herbs. Refined but sweet fruit in the mouth, with a clean, subtle and savoury finish. Fine and chalky tannins with gentle grip at the last.
2016 Shiny Syrah: A mixture of 27 and 46 year old Tamar Valley vines produce this outstanding Tasmania shiraz. Mulberry, mocha, plum, white pepper... Chalky and spicy tannins and a lick of vanilla from the oak. Super.
2016 Little Shiny Pinot on Syrah Skins: Very popular wine at Pinot Shop. Juicy Tamar pinot fruit is fermented on 'syrah' skins, giving it an extra muscle of fine tannin. Bright crimson/ruby. Cherry conserve on the nose with sweet tomato confit. Spicy with white pepper. Glycerol/textured mouth-feel.
