Riversdale 2015 Roaring 40s Pinot Noir - Tasmania

ROARING success from
Tasmania's Roaring 40s,
and ideal with – what else? –
Tassie poached salmon
or a beef bourguignon.

ONE TO NOTE: A VARIETY that's played a key role in the development of Tasmania's modern-day wine industry is Pinot Noir, and just released from Riversdale Estate in the island State's south is a most delightful 2015 Roaring 40s Pinot Noir – so named after the howling westerly winds that play such a significant role in the make-up of Tasmania's climatic conditions.

Riversdale's owners Ian and Wendy Roberts planted their Pinot Noir a quarter of a century ago, and have their wine made for them by contract makers Frogmore Creek Wines just a couple of k's down the road from their vineyard. The 2015 Roaring 40s Pinot Noir is all about rich, smooth chocolaty/black cherry fruit flavours, and equally rewarding with (what else from Tasmania?) poached salmon, or a beef bourguignon.

Great value at $26 online at  or cellar door.
