Glaetzer-Dixon Tasmania Nouveau 2016

Nick’s take on Beaujo Nouveau. Sourced from upper Derwent & Tamar Valleys. Carbonic Maceration. The Beastie Boys were playing loud on the stereo when this fruit was in the winery, maybe that’s where it gets its funk.

Glaetzer-Dixon Tasmania Nouveau, Pinot Noir 2016


The fun and funk of the carbonic signals like a Bootsy Collins bass line. Smoky cherry, touch of stalky vegetation. Palate bounces and jives: cherries & deep burnt orange/choc. Don’t mistake this for a plaything, the acid profile is spot on while the meaty finish of ham brings balance to the bright fruit front.
