Glaetzer-Dixon have continued to kick goals since their Jimmy Watson win in 2011, and this bonny little pinot noir would be great with anything from poached salmon to duck pancakes. Plums and strawberries climb out of the glass, whilst the palate is very medium-bodied and smooth, with soft tannins, friendly but bright acidity, and a gentle fruity finish. It's made in an early-drinking style and is totally smashable!
"Maraschino cherries and plums. Bright, juicy red fruit,
hint of mixed spice."
The Glaetzer family of winemakers has roots in the Barossa Valley dating
back to 1888.
In 2005 the quest for crafting the best cool climate pinot noir, shiraz and
riesling inspired the formation of the Glaetzer-Dixon Family company in
Nick Glaetzer hand-makes wine from grapes grown in the cool, fresh climate
of Tasmania, drawing on his experience and passion, fuelled by working
numerous vintages around Australia, France and Germany.
In 2011 Nick won the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for his 2010 Mon
Père Shiraz and was also named “Young Winemaker of the Year” by the
Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine.
The 2014 GDF Tasmania Nouveau pinot noir has been crafted in the same
style as the orignal Beaujolais Nouveau wines of France. It's a fantastically
fresh red wine, best drunk now.
