Description

Two Tonne Tasmania was a finalist in the 2016 & 2017 Young Gun of Wine, and was recipient of the ‘People’s Choice’ Award in 2016.


The 2019 Dog & Wolf Pinot Noir is a combination of two parcels of fruit.  The first, picked early, intense flavour, and concentration, made more in the house style, 30% whole bunch this year.  The second, taken a little later, is 100% whole bunch, a wilder expression.  Together these sit side by side in maturation, until being blended to find balance between power and elegance, creating ‘the dog & wolf’. Production is limited to the quality of the season.  Bottled without fining or filtration.

This year the balance was found at 50% whole bunch inclusion across the blend.  2019 was an incredible growing season, with timely rain events keeping things fresh at the right time.  The summer was warm, and tailed off into a beautiful picking period in the north of the state.  Yields were naturally low, and the wines have an intensity about them that reflects this.

There is a 100% whole bunch version in 2019, ‘the wolf’, which is a single site (three wishes) wine, which will be released when it has spent enough time in the cellar.
