93 points Halliday Wine Companion


Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12.5%
Colour: The Pirie Rosé is showing an elegant salmon pink colour.
Aroma: This wine has lovely rose petal, strawberry and freshly baked bread aromas.
Palate: The palate is creamy and yeasty with a powerful fruit-driven complexity due to the Pinot Noir grapes used to make the wine. It is also boasting incredible balance with cool climate Tasmanian fruit. This wine is ready to drink now and will continue to develop nicely over the next 4 years.
Peak Drinking: Until 2024

Recommended food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to a range of canapés including smoked salmon and dill mayonnaise. Or why not try it with pan-fried ocean trout served with bok choy and a garlic and soy dressing, and for the sweet tooth; raspberry and vanilla parfait.

Growing Conditions: The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the cool-climate vineyards of northern Tasmania. The wine is made entirely from Pinot Noir.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed. The fruit was harvested from early March to early April 2016 at 10.0 to 11.0 baumé. 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 3.5 years resting on lees prior to disgorging and dosage. The wine has an alcohol of 12.5%. Vegan-friendly.
