Winemaker Notes

White Hills' typical black cherry aromas are complemented by sweet plum and floral notes. The palate is full and textured with a plush mid palate which finishes sweet and clean. Age 1-3 years and serve in a big glass to capture the perfume.

Pair with a crusty baguette with brie or young camembert, or quail with black cherries.

Critical Acclaim

JH 94
Australian Wine Companion

Decidedly reserved bouquet, with a strong savoury aspect reminiscent of graphite and showing hints of dark cherries; the fruit makes an appearance on the palate, but the mineral edge remains, and there is a firmness of tannin that is ultimately very satisfying, drawing the palate out to a long and even conclusion.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Pinot Noir South, medium ruby-colored, it displays an aromatic array of earth notes, cinnamon, cherry, and cranberry. It has excellent density, sweet fruit, a glossy texture, and excellent length. Drink it over the next 5 years.

Pirie Tasmania

View all wine
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.
