Two Tonne Tasmania Dog & Wolf Pinot Noir 2016

Sometimes wine makes you do backflips and head spins. On tasting this wine I had to unsheathe it from its brown paper bag. I did a double taking thinking that someone had slipped something from the northern slopes of Mount Etna in the bag, or, maybe it was something unusual from Piedmont – curiosity in my pinot noir line up for the day. It’s a striking wine here from the young talent that is Ricky ‘Bobby’ Evans. It’s a mix of one portion of wine that is almost half whole bunches in the ferment, and a portion that is 100% whole bunch. Oak is kept to 25% new and it’s bottled unfiltered, unfined, and totally wild. Unreal.
