Our most recent release of our multi awarded Pirie Sparkling Vintage.

|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 biscuit and granny smith apple flavours and a yeasty complexity to the nose.|
|Palate:||The palate is powerful and the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance.|
|Peak Drinking:||This wine is ready to drink now and will continue to develop nicely over the next 6 years.|
Recommended food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to a range of canapés including cured salmon with a ponzu sauce or a salt and pepper squid. Or try it with lemon infused grilled chicken breast and a fresh garden salad.
Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the cool-climate vineyards of the Tamar Valley in Tasmania. 51% Kayena Vineyard and 49% White Hills Vineyard. The wine is a blend of Chardonnay 52% and Pinot Noir 48%. The grapes were handpicked, then top loaded to air bag press.
Winemaking notes: After gentle pressing the wine spent time in stainless steel tank for cool fermentation. The wine was made in strict adherence to the traditional method techniques with 100% of the wine undergoing malolactic fermentation, and a long, slow secondary fermentation in the bottle. It spent 3 years resting on lees prior to disgorging and dosage.
