Glaetzer-Dixon Tasmanian Nouveau
A new label from Tassie’s rising star, Nick Glaetzer. “I’ve always been a fan of Beaujolais Nouveau, and this year I ran out of 2012 before the 2013 came on, so this was a great way to fill the gap,” he told me when I visited recently. It’s more than just a stopgap wine, an ideal ready-to-drink unoaked pinot noir filled with berry compote and mixed spice flavour and a touch of banana from a portion of carbonic maceration. It comes into its own on the finish, with a wonderfully fine, crunchy tannin texture. Every bistro should be pouring this, but at just 1000 dozen, you’d better be quick. $26 at Edinburgh Cellars and Pinot Shop.
