The majority of this wine is Riesling, whole bunch pressed and fermented in a combination old French oak & stainless steel, left to rest on lees for three months. It was blended with a small amount (5%) of Gewürztraminer, which had a couple of weeks of carbonic maceration, before being pressed to an old oak, where it matured separately until blending. The result is an aromatic, fresh and textural white wine. Lemongrass, bath salt, spice and peel on the nose. On the palate, crunchy granny smith apple, classic lemon and lime juiciness from the Riesling, aided by sweetness and texture from the gewürztraminer with has been carefully blended to find balance.
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.
