2018 Bye’s Pinot noir
Our wine maker James Scott, believes this is the best wine he made for us. Great in colour, a vibrant deep red, very smooth with rich plum notes, quite a ballsy pinot.
Winsor Dobbin's review
Organic, minimal-intervention, hand-picked and small-batch are all current buzz phrases in the wine industry, but the team at Tasmanian Organic Wines has been right across the current fashion for close to two decades, crafting tiny quantities of high-quality pinot noir in the Liffey Valley, down the road from Deloraine. The vineyard was planted by Ian Cairns in 1999 and has been farmed organically ever since. Now a gamay has been added to the range.. The new-release 2018 pinot noir is right in the zone, with crisp nights and a long ripening period resulting in a wine of style and elegance with red berry flavours augmented by deli aromas, truffle notes and a clean, bright acid finish. The classic match for this delightfully structured pinot would be roast duck, but this would also pair brilliantly with stuffed mushrooms.
2019 'Dry's Bluff' Gamay
Fermented in whole bunch this fun fruity light style wine has slight smooth tannins and is made with mature Gamay grapes grown on the foot hills of Dry’s Bluff.
Small batch and only selling by the half dozen.
Winsor Dobbin: Unusual and delicious
