Glaetzer-Dixon 2015 Avancé Pinot Noir

Nick Glaetzer comes from a famous family of Barossa vignerons, but he is very much at home in cool-climate Tasmania, where he makes wines of real personality from pinot noir, shiraz and riesling. This is the brand-new release of his "drink now" style of pinot, made from fruit sourced in the Upper Derwent Valley, north of Hobart. It is inviting and intriguing in its youth with what Glaetzer describes as "vibrant blue fruit" characters to the fore. Although it is young, it already has some complexity and would be a good each way bet; enjoy a couple of bottles now and consign a few more to the cellar. If you are visiting Hobart then pop into the new Glaetzer-Dixon urban winery and cellar door. $32.
