Full ruby colour with a good tint of purple, and a spicy cool-climate shiraz nose, peppery, floral and gently bunchy with Italianate herb nuances. The wine is very elegantly shaped and structured, with fine grained tannins and delicious drinkability. Intense and focused, and superbly balanced. A beautiful wine, irresistible drinking!

2020 Pinot Noir
Stunning crimson-magenta colour sets the scene for a perfumed wine of exceptional quality, its ever-changing aromas and flavours encapsulated in an insistent heartbeat of purity.
The mouthfeel, length and balance of the red and black cherry fruit underpins a wine that is great now, spicy complexity around the corner.
In his first vintage for Tasmanian Vintners, and a first release from a new wine business, Liam McElhinney blitzed the 2021 Australian Pinot Noir Challenge.
Liam McElhinney can’t quite believe it. “When you enter a wine you really love into a competition you hope it might win a gold medal,” says the New Zealand-born winemaker.
“But to come away with the top trophy at the Australian Pinot Noir Challenge – it’s a bit surreal. I’m dumbstruck.”
