Handpicked 2018 Tasmania The Collection Pinot Noir
Winery : Handpicked
THREE TROPHIES 2019 Royal Hobart Wine Show: Best Pinot Noir, Best Red Wine in Show, Best Tasmanian Red Wine
Handpicked makes wines 'with minimal intervention from sustainably managed vineyards' all over the world. Peter Dillon is the head of winemaking. Handpicked's excursion into Tasmania is relatively recent but the early results are impressive. Fruit for this wine comes from the Coal River Valley and East Tamar.
Lovely precision here - the colour sets the scene with its clarity and glittering ruby. On the nose there are hints of charcuterie with sweet red cherry. Fine and lithe in the mouth with intriguing candied violets/chalky tannins. Toasted coconut from the oak swings in along with savoury char/cola on the finish.
