Silky smooth and stylish
The island state of Tasmania is Australia’s coolest wine region. Vineyards here benefit from many hours of summer sunlight, but average temperatures tend to be much lower than mainland Australia. In the era of climate change this makes Tasmanian wine very cool indeed and it has rapidly gained a reputation for being a premium wine region for Pinot Noir.
The 2016 Tamar Ridge Pinot from the Tamar Valley in the north of the island is a silky smooth and stylish example. It has ripe up-front fruit flavours of cherry and strawberries. This intensity of ripe fruit gives round mouth-filling flavours leading to a long gentle finish with supple, silky tannins and excellent length and persistence.
The earthy, spicy nature of this Pinot Noir, coupled with its dark cherry fruit character, matches perfectly with game meats – crispy duck or grilled quail. Also great with pulled pork or seared salmon and tuna. Roast or other cooked beetroot dishes
