Vivid colour and deep for a pinot noir. Very complex nose of plum, raspberry, rhubarb, cassis and potpourri. Red fruits and pastille blackcurrant, mixed with herbs and smoky/gamey complexity. I’m not sure how the wine was made, but there is some subtle oak influences that hone the natural edginess of the fruit. Fuller bodied than I expected, the palate is plush, held together nicely by a slinky tannic frame. This is a beautiful interpretation of Tasmanian pinot noir, and despite it’s joy and charm, there is a studied seriousness too. 06/07/2020
Two Tonne’s TMV range stands for Tasmania’s Tamar Valley. Beginning just south of Launceston the valley winds 50km north to its meeting point with the powerful Bass Strait. Produced from different sites, their intent is to reflect the standout characteristics of the Tamar Valley sub region.
