Swirl Sniff Spit - Session 30 - Tasmania

Brisbane boy Dave Cush was studying law when, working in a bottle shop, he was smitten. It was love. Love in a bottle.

After twelve years at the helm of leading Tasmanian producer Spring Vale, Dave has returned home to Brisbane – and naturally jumped at the chance to show to the #SwirlSniffSpit crowd the vinous delights of Tasmania at our 18th February tasting.

We’ll be looking at Tasmania through the lens that is Pinot Noir – a grape variety very reflective of terroir – and unarguably Tasmania’s signature grape variety.

This is a paid tasting ($20/ticket) and tickets are available now through Eventbrite.

All wines are from the 2012 vintage.
