2020 Lowestoft Single Vineyard Jacoben Pinot Noir

The Collective Review

Lowestoft took out the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy in 2023 for their 2022 La Maison Pinot Noir. While this is not released until 2024, we can satisfy your every Pinot dream with their 2020 Single Vineyard Jacoben Pinot which is a cleverly crafted gold-medal winning wine with a strong 96 points from Winestate.

The Lowestoft homestead is one of Tasmania’s oldest, built between 1839 and 1850. This magnificent property is located on the banks of the picturesque Derwent River and overlooks the renowned MONA museum and art gallery, and Moorilla Winery. The Lowestoft vineyard is a small, densely planted 3-hectare vineyard with some of the oldest Pinot Noir plantings in Tasmania. Today you’ll find an opportunity to taste 3 of their Pinot offerings, as well as a Chardonnay - two of Tasmania’s premium grapes.

“Gorgeous aromatic perfumed opening on the nose,” says Ray Jordan of The West Australian. Doesn’t that make you want to just dive right in? He gave this Pinot 94 points, and Winestate gave it 96. This is Pinot perfection - it exudes charm and sophistication from the outset, and sustains it to the last drop.

Tasting Notes

An alluring wine from the outset, this Pinot Noir exudes charm and sophistication with a lifted perfume of dried cranberry, dark cherry and pomegranate fruits threaded seamlessly with exotic spice notes of cinnamon, star anise and earthy sandalwood tones. The palate is luminous with layers of complex dried red fruits and savoury spice framed with precision acid lines and plush powdered cocoa tannins.
