Product not in wishlist

In stock

The cool slopes of the Tamar Valley region, located in northern Tasmania have the potential to produce great sparkling wine. This richly flavoured cuvée made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir boasts complexity from barrel-aged base wine and reserve blending. It displays the impact of terroir and the favourable interaction of climate and soil on these vines.


Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12%
Colour: The Pirie Vintage is showing bright, golden colours with hints of green at the edges.
Aroma: There is some lovely lemon zest on the nose that is underlined by creamy and yeasty complexity.
Palate: The palate is quite rich initially until the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance.
Peak Drinking: Until 2023

Recommended food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to a range of canapés including freshly shucked oysters and lightly char grilled calamari with a lemon infused mayonnaise. Or try it with pan-fried salmon fillets with a fresh garden salad and a caper olive oil dressing.

Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the cool-climate vineyards of northern Tasmania. The wine is a blend of Chardonnay 51% and Pinot Noir 49%. The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed with the fruit harvested from late February to early April 2012 at 10.0 to 11.0 baumé.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: 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. It spent 5 years resting on lees prior to disgorging and dosage. The wine has an alcohol of 12.0%, a pH of 3.02, an acid level of 7.4g/L.
