The Ziggurat Pinot Noir is a balancing act between whole bunch carbonic maceration, and whole berry, ferment, with minimal maceration. 50:50 between the styles, attempting to find the balance between spice and sweetness, in a fresh, early drinking style, its Pinot Noir, chasing a Beaujolais style.
Two Tonne Tasmania
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.
