It’s a bit of a divergence in style for this wine, though none the worse for it. Joe Holyman is one of the best, most intuitive winemakers in the country.
My goodness, this is just flat out delicious. Juicy red fruits dusted with Asian spices and vanilla florals, cut fennel and sweet fresh picked herbs. It’s light bodied, vibrant and bursting with fresh red fruits and subtle earthy and herbal undertones, pure sparkling crunchy acidity, and ultra-fine sandpaper tannin on the long bright finish provides the final polish. All the fun of the fair, with effortless drinkability. If you like a good Cru Beaujolais, then this Tassie Pinot will tickle your fancy.
