Two Tonnes 2019 TMV and EST Pinot Noir
Ricky Evans is certainly a man who has put himself on the map producing some of Tasmania’s most exciting and hard-to-get small batch wines. “Small Parcels, big love” is the slogan and as the name suggests, TTT (Two Tonne Tasmania) wines are made in extremely small volumes with a lot of care and attention.
After completing his oenology degree and with stints in the Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, Germany, United Kingdom, Napa Valley and Barolo under his belt, he returned to Tasmania where he held the role as winemaker at Bay of Fires.
Shortly after, heading out on his own, Ricky established TTT in 2013 producing wines that showcase the purity and sophistication of modern Tasmania with his soft touch and deft work in the winery. His thoughtful wine-making approach has seen him take home a swag of accolades and garner a cult following in just a short amount of time.
The TTT style is purposeful and one of nurturing where site is paramount, and a close eye kept on the vineyards. The idea is to facilitate a situation where intervention in the winery is needed as little as possible – no filtration, minimal additions, judicial use of oak and a light hand to guide at the right time the key tenants of the wine-making philosophy.
Perhaps what best exemplifies this philosophy are his latest release Pinot’s. The TMV is produced from a number of different vineyard sites and within those several, select small parcels, the intent to reflect the standout characteristics of the Tamar Valley sub-region. The EST on the other hand is a special release sourced from the East Coast of Tasmania, from 3 different vineyards above and below the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s east coast.
What they offer is two very different snapshots of sub-regional Tasmania as well showcasing a winemaker who is just starting to hit his stride.
While there are no reviews yet for these wines they always get great accolades and press. In addition our allocations are always limited so we highly recommend you snap these up while you can.
