Tasmania, with its cool climate and pristine landscapes, has established itself as a powerhouse in the world of Pinot Noir production. Known for its unique terroir and winemaking finesse, this island state has become a stronghold for crafting elegant and expressive Pinot Noirs. In Tasmania, it's not just about producing wine; it's about encapsulating the essence of the land. The Shy Susan Pinot Noir 2021 pays homage to this tradition, offering a glimpse into the remarkable character of Tasmanian Pinot Noirs.

The Shy Susan Pinot Noir 2021 benefits from Tasmania's cool, maritime climate, ideal for the cultivation of Pinot Noir grapes. This climate contributes to a slow and even ripening process, resulting in a balanced acidity and nuanced flavor development in the grapes.

In the glass, the Shy Susan Pinot Noir 2021 showcases a translucent ruby hue, a classic characteristic of cool-climate Pinot Noirs from Tasmania.

On the nose, this Pinot Noir unveils an alluring bouquet of red berries, led by vibrant notes of red currants and cherries. A subtle underpinning of earthy forest floor, intertwined with a touch of delicate spice, adds depth and intrigue.

The palate is a delicate dance of flavors. Bright red fruit, including ripe strawberries and raspberries, takes center stage, delivering a juicy and refreshing profile. There's a nuanced earthiness that grounds the wine, harmoniously intertwined with hints of cinnamon and cloves.

The finish is silky-smooth and lingering, with gentle tannins that caress the palate. It leaves behind a trail of red fruit and a touch of dried herbs, showcasing the wine's Tasmanian terroir.

Food Pairings:

  1. Truffle Gnocchi with Wild Fungi, Provolone, Parsley, Cavolo Nero, and Garlic Butter Sugo: The Pinot Noir's earthy and fruity notes will beautifully complement the rich flavors of the truffle and wild fungi, while its smooth tannins will pair well with the creamy textures of the dish.

  2. Pulled Pork Croquettes with Manchego, Bechamel, Mesquite, and Tomato Chutney: The wine's balanced acidity and berry flavors will beautifully complement the savory richness of the pork and the creamy textures of the cheese and bechamel, enhancing the depth of the tomato chutney.
