Dog & Wolf 2018 Pinot Noir
Winery : Two Tonne Tasmania
Ricky Evans (formerly a winemaker for Bay of Fires) has been making his mark with Two Tonne Tasmania Pinot Noirs TMV and EST - 'small parcels, big love...' with fruit sourced from Tamar Valley and East Coast respectively. Dog & Wolf is his limited volume, ultra premium release.
Michele's notes: Tamar Valley fruit. Bright & pretty magenta in the glass. Particularly vivacious aromatics in this release - florals and red berry fruits - and these lively fruit flavours continue in the mouth. Evans has used quite a lot of whole bunch in the ferment, but as a mark of the good winemaker that he is, you don't see it; it serves simply to lift the perfume and give a textural component. Sweet fruit sweeps across the palate with subtle vanilla/chocolate from the oak. It is a beautiful wine with a lot of charm.
