Cheers TV: On the Tasmanian Pinot Noir trail

Don’t be fooled that there is just ‘one’ Tasmania when it comes to wine, and especially to Pinot Noir. This week, independent sommeliers Dan Sims and Ben Edwards from The Wine Guide look at Tasmania in four distinct parts – given that, as Ben says, Pinot Noir has so many different personalities and shows its origins and heritage better than any other grape variety. Discover a northern wine from the Tamar Valley, a cooler more structured east coast offering from Freycinet, a warmer fruited north-western wine in Davenport and a weightier more powerful Pinot Noir from the south.
