One of our favourite producers from the Apple Isle. Nick Glaetzer is making some of the best value wines but also some of the best more premium wines too. This falls into the great value category cause that's exactly what it is. Very good Pinot Noir for the price. The Nouveau is Nick's early release Pinot Noir so you can expect a real representation of fruit vibrancy and life. It's a Wow kind of wine, from the first smell of lifted red cherries - likely from the winemaking style of Carbonic Maceration. Palate gives more of that fine, forward cherry fruit and a touch of spice.13.5% alc. Quality uplifting pinot. Value. - Michael L
Nick Glaetzer moved to Tasmania in 2005, driven by his obsession with cool climate pinot noir. In 2011 Nick was named Young Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine. His 2010 Mon Père Shiraz was the first Tasmanian wine to win Australia's most coveted wine award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.
Nick cut his teeth in the cellars of his family's Glaetzer Wines in the Barossa Valley and completed his oenology and viticulture degree in Margaret River. He worked in Margaret River, (Leeuwin Estate), the Hunter Valley (Rosemount Estate), the Pfalz region of Germany (Weingut Eugen Muller), Burgundy (Domaine Albert Morot) and the Langeudoc (Domain de la Ferrrandière) before a love of pinot noir drew him to Tasmania. He initially worked alongside Alain Rousseau and Andrew Hood at Frogmore Creek Winery in the Coal River Valley.
In 2008 Nick set up Glaetzer-Dixon Family Winemakers, initially sharing winemaking facilities at Frogmore Creek and Moorilla before moving to a purpose-built cellar in a former ice factory on the edge of Hobart's CBD.
