Tasmania at #ADT2015‏

Australia Day Tasting 2015 with Wine Australia

Geographically - and metaphorically - part-way between Australia and New Zealand, Tasmania is, I'm told by Tasmanians, something of a rugged, unspoilt, cool-climate wilderness. A bit like the Scottish Highlands or West Virginia, then.
I was keen to try the wines.
Eddystone Point Pinot Gris 2013 (£14) ripe and toasty Pinot Gris with sweet spice. Good.
Josef Chromy Chardonnay 2013 (£15 - £20) fresh, beeswax and sweet spice; complex and technically accomplished. Very Good.
Eddystone Point Pinot Noir 2011 (£14) pale, fresh elegant, Burgundian. Technically very well-made. Good.
Bay of Fires Pinot Noir 2013 (£22) Burgundian nose, sweet ripe fruits, minerality. Fresh and adept.
Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2012 (£26.99) sampled with the seared venison and lentils at lunchtime, this was a lovely, fresh, pure Pinot.
