Five Bob 2022 Pinot Noir


Five Bob is the newest label in the fast-emerging d'Entrecasteaux region south of Hobart. New vineyards were planted in 2018 to the two varieties that shine in southern Tasmania; pinot noir and chardonnay, along with some pinot gris and riesling. This has an appealing youthful energy to it, with vibrant varietal characters and plenty of vim and vigour. Five Bob is located at Birchs Bay and the wines are made - in tiny quantities - just down the road at Mewstone by talented Jonny Hughes. Think 20% whole bunch, gently pressed, and aged in seasoned French oak. Unfiltered and unfined, Only 780 bottles made. One for drinking in its youth, I think, and it paired well with lamb burgers and Mediterranean vegetables. $45..
