Our ‘Young Gun’ winemakers

Tasmania’s ‘young gun’ wine-makers are definitely punching above their weight. The state has three finalists in the top dozen vying to be crowned best young winemaker in the country. They will face off at the national Young Gun Wine Awards at MONA on June 18. One of Tasmania’s young guns is Ricky Evans who produces riesling and pinot noir at the Two Tonne Tasmania winery near Swansea. He was named People's Champion at the 2016 awards and told The Examiner the award definitely boosted the Two Tonne Tasmania brand: “It gives you a lot of exposure when you’re sitting next to winemakers of this calibre.” He is also proud of the young talent coming through our winemaking ranks, saying “Tasmania has three finalists. We’re batting above our average in terms of production and it’s a great indication of where quality lies.” The other two Tasmanian Young Gun finalists are; Jonathan Hughes from Mewstone in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel; and Gilli and Paul Lipscombe from Sailor Seeks Horse in the Huon Valley.

Scallop sensation

All roads lead to Bridport for scallop lovers in August. The north-east village is getting ready to host the first Tassie Scallop Fiesta, an event sure to draw crowds of eager seafood lovers. The fiesta will celebrate the arrival of the first scallops of the season, while also recognising Bridport’s key role in Tasmania’s scallop industry. The scallop boats may be too big to pull into Bridport these days, but one of the state’s biggest operators, Allan Barnett, still runs his processing plant in the seaside village. Festival organiser, Tony Scott, told The Examiner he was inspired by the success of Tasmania’s winter festivals: “We thought, how about we try and inject a bit of activity into the village when it’s not quite as active in the wintertime.” So, if you fancy scallops fresh off the boats, just head to Bridport on August 5.

Anzac biscuit beer

As Tasmanians turned out in force on Anzac Day to remember the sacrifices of servicemen and women at dawn services and lunch-time parades, one beer brewer chose to honour our diggers in a more innovative way. Launceston boutique beer-maker, Morrison Brewery, created a special beer to mark this most sacred of days. A beer flavoured like…Anzac biscuits. It is described by its creator, Paul Morrison, as a malt heavy creation with notes of coconut and golden syrup: just like its biscuit namesake. This special Anzac biscuit beer was unveiled at Launceston’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival, a three-day event that inspires boutique brewers to create a showcase beer using freshly harvested hops. Taking that to heart, Paul Morrison mixed Ella Hops, recently picked at Bushy Park, with coconut, oats and golden syrup to create his biscuity brew. Don’t ever expect it to take the place of that enduring Anzac tipple – the rum toddy –but it is certainly an interesting way to raise a glass to our diggers.
