Havilah is there fun, quirky sibling of Ricky Evans' Two Tonne Tasmania. These are wines made with fruit from around the Tamar Valley grown by like-minded vignerons, as opposed to Ricky himself. It means the same feverish dedication to quality is applied to a series of wines that are a little more easily attainable.

The pink Petillant is made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. It's kind of traditional in makeup, using classic Champagne varieties, from a region that makes what is arguably Australia's most serious sparkling wine. Except this guy is cloudy and designed to be consumed while maintaining the minimum amount of social distancing possible. A mix of barrel and tank ferment, bottled before it finished, left on lees and disgorged by hand, pretty much to order.
