2019 Ghost Rock ‘Estate’ Northern Tasmania Pinot Noir
This property is about a 10 minute drive from Devonport, in the town of Northdown. Owner / winemaker Justin Arnold and his wife Alicia (who runs the cooking school and cellar door) run the show. Justin made wine in France, America and the Australian mainland (Coldstream Hills & Devil’s Lair) before taking on the family vineyard. The family has been farming land around this area since 1854. The fruit for his Estate Pinot Noir is all hand-picked and majority destemmed (10% whole bunch). The resulting wine is beautifully floral and pretty and the palate is feminine and velvety.
