Mixed SIX pack contains one each of the following wines, mixed DOZEN contains two each.
D'Entrecasteaux Channel is the picturesque waterway between Bruny Island and the Tasmanian mainland, extending around to the estuary of the Huon River, south of Hobart. These are fleshy pinots, with volume and silkiness even in their youth. Flavours are full but balanced, a result of the long, long ripening season in this very southerly part of the world. In nearby Ranelagh/Huon, the high latitude and micro-climate create pinot noirs of full-flavoured depth, while in Cradoc/Cygnet area, refinement and poise rule the style.
2016 Tinderbox Pinot Noir - Tinderbox owner Liz McGown planted the first vines in 1994. Alain Rousseau of Frogmore Creek Winery makes the wine. This is a beautifully aromatic wine with dark berry, lip-smacking juicy fruit, cedar and spicy notes, set off by a textured and quite slippery palate with beautifully fine tannins.
2017 Sailor Seeks Horse Pinot Noir - Paul & Gilli Lipscombe's flowing Pinot Noir is already a 'cult' wine after only a few vintages. Beautiful perfume, medium-weight, precise Pinot with excellent texture.
2016 Elsewhere Pinot Noir - East bank of the Huon R. Pioneer in the region, having established in the 1980s by Eric & Jette Phillips. Current owners, the Knights, have rehabilitated the vineyard for the production of premium wine, pinot noir in particular. Aromatic with cranberry & orange peel; sweet, juicy red berry fruits finishing clean in the mouth.
2018 Home Hill Pinot Noir - An Australian Pinot Noir classic. Home Hill Pinots are multi-awarded wines. This new vintage continues the sleek, silky black-fruited theme with beguiling perfume of damask roses.
2018 Hughes & Hughes 15% Whole Bunch Pinot Noir - from the Mewstone team. Delicious sweet cherry fruit with dry, chalky tannins on the finish. Small amount of whole bunch lifts the fragrance. Touch of pepper spice.
2018 Chatto Seven Inch Pinot Noir: Made from a small vineyard barely 1km away from the Chatto's own Cygnet site. The Chatto mission is to create wines of purity and balance, the fruit spectrum tending to red fruits with vibrancy and line.
