Tamar Ridge 2013 Reserve Pinot Noir


Tamar Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir is only made in exceptional years. Vintages 2002, 2005, 2007, 2009 (double Gold Medallist), 2012 were made in the last decade and the latest release is from the super 2013 vintage. The Kayena site (just north of the Batman Bridge) on the west Tamar, was developed in 1994 by Josef Chromy when he established Tamar Ridge. This 134ha site is planted to white varieties and pinot noir and is acknowledged as one of the best sites in the state for pinot noir in particular. Vineyard notes: 'The majority of the vineyard is planted on gentle undulating slopes with a northerly and north-easterly aspect. All vines are hand-pruned and a significant amount of the fruit produced at Kayena is hand harvested to produce grapes that display pristine fruit flavours and distinctive varietal character.'

Luxuriously perfumed with ripe dark fruits (blackberry), fine floral elements of tea rose and wet stone. In the mouth the fruit ripeness is pulled in by almost invisible oak and excellent acid balance making the overall impression one of refreshment, which is the important task of wine, red and white. The second mouthful reinforces just how juicy the wine is, with morello cherries and then fine chalky-edged tannins to finish. Class act.




Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
