Recommended food pairings: Serve with natural oysters for the perfect start to a meal or try it with richer fish like baked ocean trout or yellow fin tuna. The Pirie NV could also be enjoyed with a ripe brie and thinly sliced granny smith apple segments.
Growing Conditions: The wine is made from Chardonnay 53%, and Pinot Noir 47%, grown in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: The majority of the blend is from the 2016 vintage with some earlier vintages included to add complexity. Free run juice and light pressings (max 0.2 bar) are oxidatively handled. 10% of the blend was fermented and matured older French barrels for between 2 and 6 months. Tirage and secondary ferment in bottle (Traditional Method) was followed by 20 months on lees before disgorging. It was bottled with an alcohol of 12.0 a T.A. of 6.9g/l and a pH of 3.15.
