Quite deeply coloured for a young Pinot, aromas are of cherry stones and almond pastry. The wine displays a soft fruit middle palate but with enough firm tannins and fresh acidity on the finish to provide structure and length. Age 1-3 years and serve in a big glass to capture the perfume.

Pirie Tasmania is the latest evolution of one man's belief that Tasmania can be one of the truly great wine regions of the world. As Australia's first PhD in viticulture, founder of Pipers Brook Vineyard (1973-2002) and more recently Pirie Estate and SOUTH labels (est 2004,) and recipient of the Australian Medal for his services to Tasmanian wine and tourism (2001,) Andrew Pirie's contribution to the industry is indisputable, as now is Tasmania's position as a jewel in the crown of Australian wine.
