Late Disgorged 2011 in gift box
The Pirie Late Disgorged is a batch of the best Sparkling wine of 2011 that we left in our cellars for long term lees aging. It is showing golden colours although still very bright for the age. There is some lovely the freshly baked sour dough bread smell is prominent as to the lemon curd freshness. The palate is powerful and the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance. This wine is ready to drink now and will continue to develop nicely over the next 3 years.
10 years on lees has led to this moment: a rare and exquisite cuvée showcasing outstanding complexity and depth.
“The pick of the vintage and only produced in strong years, this concentrated and classically structured wine is designed to offer savoury complexity and elegance, with richness of texture. Our first ten year late disgorge wine 2011 an iconic vintage in Tasmania for sparkling is celebrated here with rich autolysis and concentration but the ever present Tasmania acidity guiding the way.”

Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the White Hills cool-climate vineyard in northern Tasmania. The wine is a blend of Chardonnay 52% and Pinot Noir 48%. The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed with the fruit harvested from late February to late March 2011 at 10.5 to 11.5 baumé.
Winemaking notes: The grapes were top loaded to air bag press, then weent through gentle pressing. It was followed by a cool fermentation in tank with 20% left on lees in old French oak. The wine was made in strict adherence to the traditional method techniques with 100% of the wine undergoing malo lactic fermentation, and a long, slow secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine aged for 10 years on lees in the bottle before being disgorged in 2022.
