This 2015 Single Block Pinot Noir is our second release, harnessing a select block and clone of Pinot Noir to showcase its attributes.


Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14.1%
Colour: The wine shows a dark crimson purple colour.
Aroma: The nose is generous in plum and berry fruits while still showing some spicy, cedar notes.
Palate: On the palate the wine is medium bodied with savoury dark cherry flavour. The French oak barriques used in maturing this wine provide structure and intensity while being perfectly integrated. Typical Tamar Ridge tannins are balanced by supple fruit character that builds into a long finish.
Peak Drinking: Until 2025

Recommended food pairings: Serve with beef shin risotto and wild mushrooms or a selection of washed rind cheeses wit

Growing Conditions: Pinot Noir from block 21 on our Kayena vineyard located in the Tamar Valley. A single clone was chosen for this wine called the MV6 or Mother Vine 6. This clone is known for its low yields, generous colour and structured tannins.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: Fruit was destemmed and left to cold soak for several days prior to ferment. Fermentation then took place in open fermenters with regular plunging. Once dry, the ferment was pressed off to barrel using a basket press. Malolactic fermentation and maturation took place over 12 months in French oak barriques with approx. 30% new oak used. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14.1%, a TA of 6.57g/l and a pH of 3.53.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “MV6 clone from the Kayena vineyard, 5 days cold soak, wild yeast-open fermented, matured for 12 months in French barriques (30% new). Light crimson; there is no mention of whole bunch use, but the powerful savoury tannins that permeate the long palate seem to have at least some whole bunch origins. Red fruits stand up to the tannins.”

  2. “Both the 2014 & 2015 Tamar Ridge Single Block Pinot Noir are also fascinating wines. The ’14 is the smoother and rounder of the pair with the ’15 showing more grip and reluctance on the palate and they are very exciting
