Grey Sands Tasmania Pinot Noir 2010

Standard

Yes, Grey Sands only released this vintage in the second half of last year and it remains their latest offering.

Bob and Rita Richter purposely hold back their wine until the wine has had time to develop in the bottle. I guess that’s the luxury of a small independent vineyard.

If you are making a visit to Tasmania, this is a vineyard to put on your “must visit” list. It’s not flashy, in fact quite the reverse. If the weather is foul, you may very well end up in the Richter’s kitchen. If the weather is fine and the season is right, you’ll end up sampling your wine in one of northern Tasmania’s finest gardens.

They’re not open every day so best to call Rita beforehand and make an appointment. Check the website for details: http://www.greysands.com.au

A low profile winery but with a very strong following from loyal customers.

Eldridge Estate “PTG” Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir Gamay 2015

Standard

There are times when you’re not looking for a heavy red over dinner, but not looking for a white either. Or maybe you’re just sitting around on the balcony or next to the pool contemplating life.

This may be a wine for those occasions. As Huon Hooke says “a nice quaff”. Nothing too serious.

10 bottles only.

Cheers
