Tasmanian Pinot Made Easy No 3 DOZ


Now: $395.00

Seriously interesting pinots from some of the state's premium, but lesser known producers. North-west Tasmania through the East Coast to the Derwent Valley and south to D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
  • 3 x 2014 Laurel Bank Pinot Noir (DERWENT): Laurel Bank was established by Kerry Carland in 1986 at Granton, 20 minutes from the Hobart CBD and just north of the Bridgewater Bridge. With a northerly aspect and sloping site, this is a great place to grow pinot noir. Utterly distinctive pinot. Very deep carmine/purple but still glitteringly translucent. Typically dark berry fruits on the nose with lashings of spice and hints of candied orange rind. Extra breathing reveals a whiff of aniseed. Smooth in the mouth, with a lovely flow, this is a beautifully weighted pinot.
  • 3 x 2015 Craigie Knowe Pinot Noir (EAST COAST): An 'old' label given new life by new owners. The wines are excellent, and a tribute to their old vine heritage - the Cranbrook property was planted in 1979. This is everything you want in an East Coast pinot - sweet fruit (red and black cherries) seamlessly smooth in the mouth, ultra fine tannins and savouriness to finish. Impeccable balance means it is drinking very well right now.
  • 3 x 2015 White Rock Pinot Noir (NW COAST): White Rock Vineyard is at Kimberley in Tasmania's NW, not far in one direction from Railton and, in the other, Elizabeth Town. As well as producing a sweetly silky pinot, White Rock produces the only commercial bottling of the dornfelder grape in the country. Scents of sweet red and darl cherries mingle with savoury/cola notes (from the oak). Such a satiny smooth pinot in the mouth; the fruit flavours dominate and linger beautifully. Lots of flavour, without harsh tannins, and the medium weight makes it well-suited to sprightly Asian flavours and white meats, particularly pork belly.
  • 3 x 2016 Resolution Vineyard Pinot Noir (D'ENTRECASTEAUX CH): D'Entrecasteaux Channel is the picturesque waterway south of Hobart between Bruny Island and the Tasmanian mainland, extending around to the estuary of the Huon River. At a latitude of 43S, harvest is late here, allowing for excellent development of flavour. Resolution Vineyard is but one of the uber boutique producers in this area, tiny on volume but big on quality. Bright crimson in the glass, brilliantly aromatic and inviting with wafts of cardamom spice and raspberry brioche. It's soft but juicy, the cherry/berry/jubey fruits sing through, and it finishes clean with just a touch of fine, dry skin tannins. Oak imperceptible, nicely integrated.
