Two Tonne Tasmania 2020 Pinot Noirs
Winery : Two Tonne Tasmania
Two Tonne Tasmania is named after the two tonnes of fruit that winemaker Ricky Evans sourced for his first vintage in 2013. In that year he produced a TMV (Tamar) Pinot. In subsequent vintages EST (East Coast) joined the range, and now we have the first release of a STH (Southern Tas) Pinot Noir.
2020 Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Pinot (Tamar): Fruit is sourced six sites including Waverley, Kayena, Relbia and Evandale. Lovely aromas of fruit (raspberry) and flowers (roses) plus a candied violet. Lithe and supple in the mouth, not weighty. Slightly chalky/fine tannin finish, which Evans describes as 'strawberry-seed-like tannins'.
2020 Two Tonne Tasmania EST Pinot (East Coast): Fruit is from Maclean Bay. Prettily aromatic and slightly nervy with cherry, meaty and savoury elements. Hint of smokiness. Creamy texture in the mouth with morello cherries and good acid tension.
2020 Two Tonne Tasmania STH Pinot (Southern Tasmania): The most full-bodied of the three wines, reflecting the Coal River and Derwent valley origin of the fruit. Intense aromas of satsuma plum, coffee, chocolate and whiff of smoky/char which complements the fruit. The aromas lift beautifully with breathing. Sweet and sour cherries in the mouth with dry, fine finish.
