2018 TMV Pinot Noir

TMV is a snapshot of the Tamar Valley in any given year, from the perspective of TTT. 

The TMV18 Pinot Noir features the fundamental components of our house style.  It has a whole bunch backbone, 25% inclusion, which works in combination with a fresh, fruit-driven lift due to partial carbonic maceration.  A very gentle approach to fermentation is followed by maturation for 9 months in a mix of seasoned and new (15%) new French oak, on lees.  Racked and blended,  this wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

TWO TONNE TASMANIA BEGAN IN EARLY 2013 WHEN A YOUNG LOCAL WINEMAKER, RICKY EVANS, MANAGED TO NUDGE INTO THE TIGHTLY HELD TAMAR VALLEY.  AN OPPORTUNITY AROSE, AND HE GRASPED IT, TTT BEGAN, YES, WITH A COUPLE OF TONNE OF PINOT NOIR.  A SIMPLE AND LITERAL NAME, A REFERENCE AND REMINDER OF WHAT THIS PROJECT IS ALL ABOUT;
SMALL PARCELS | BIG LOVE.

The TTT style is purposeful, with the aim to facilitate a situation where intervention is not necessary.  We believe that with care and attention in the vineyard, and precise harvest decisions, we are most of the way to achieving our style.  The rest is nurturing.

Two Tonne Tasmania was a finalist in the 2016 & 2017 Young Gun of Wine and was the recipient of the ‘People’s Choice’ Award in 2016.
