Emilia 2015 Pinot Noir

On the bright and juicy side of the pinot spectrum with plenty of oomph, this has a lot to commend it. Emilia is a five-hectare family vineyard at Spreyton on the central north coast of Tasmania planted six years ago by Marcus and Gail Burns, who have spent a portion of their lives in Emilia-Romagna in Italy, hence the name of their farm. Fortunately, they realised that Tasmania is not suitable for Italian grape varieties and went with pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot gris. The vines are still young but they have talented consultants in Fran Austin and Shane Holloway. I liked this a lot - and clearly there is a lot of potential ahead. $38. www.emiliawines.com.au.
