Of course, there is a fair bit more to Tasmania than whites and bubbles. There’s something here for the red-wine lover, too, and that something is pretty special. Pinot noir is actually a tricky grape to grow, but when it’s done well, by producers such as Pipers Brook, the results are truly exciting. As with riesling, pinot noir shifts dramatically in style depending on where it was made. In Tasmania’s case, that means long, slow ripening that adds a depth of flavour, structure and richness that is exciting critics and punters alike. Or, to put it another way, they are absolutely delicious and world class.
