2017 Bye's Pinot noir
Known to us as the March year. A late ripening period produced this absolutely great example of euphoric flavours and mild body. A subtle tingling finish that is sure to excite.

This wine, from a tiny vineyard south-west of Launceston, is beautiful earthy, with autumnal undergrowth aromatics, ethereal red-berry fruit and long sinewy tannins.

A serious textural pinot noir with plenty of oomph from an organic producer going it alone in the remote Liffey Valley in the foothills of the Great Western Tiers. The two hectares of vines have been farmed organically by the Cairns family since 1991 and the grapes are hand-tended and hand-picked. There is plenty of fruit intensity here, along with layers of flavours and hints of appealing rusticity. Seriously good and one that pinotphiles will want to check out.
