The entree to the Holm Oak Pinot range and it's a very easy drink - raspberry plum fruit, less oak and less tannins make this one very drinkable light Pinot.

Expert Reviews

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
Huon HookeMedium red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet opens sulfidic and lacking in good ripe pinot fruit - both on the nose and palate. It’s lean and bony, skeletal, thin and short. Acidity is the most lasting feature.

How's it taste?

This fresh, lively and aromatic Pinot shows lovely lifted strawberry and spice characters on the nose. These aromatics carry through to the palate which has fine, soft tannin, lovely bright fruit and juicy acidity. This is a gorgeously light Tasmanian Pinot Noir which is perfect drinking at any time.

How was it made?

This Pinot made to be a lighter more fruit driven style of Pinot with some underlying spicy complexity. To achieve this, we have picked the fruit at moderate sugar levels when the fruit is displaying lovely fresh strawberry and cherry characters. The fruit is then de-stemmed and fermented on skins for 10 days. Specific yeasts which are known to enhance fruit aromatics are used to conduct the ferment. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in tank prior to being bottled.

Who made it?

Holm Oak can be found in the magnificent Tamar Valley region of Northern Tasmania. Established in 1983, it is named after the 100 year old oak tree grove that surrounds it. The grove was originally created with the view to using the wood to make tennis racquets. Holm Oak has been owned by the Wilson family since 2004, and the running of the business is a 100% family affair, with winemaker Bec Duffy (nee Wilson) and her viticulturalist husband, Tim Duffy, heading up the team. Their grape growing philosophy is to produce the cleanest product with the softest management practices available. In the winery, Bec takes an increasingly minimalist approach, using natural fermentation and only minimal additions and filtration. The result is beautifully pristine wines that speak of place and vintage, and showcase what Tassie wine is all about.
