Pirie Late Disgorged
Tasmania’s sparkling specialists release new premium wine
Gone are the days when the French had a monopoly over bubbles. Tasmania is punching well above its weight for a small wine region and now the whole world is taking notice. Tassie’s bubbles are made with the same loving attention as our submarine makers in Western Europe yet they sell for a fraction of the price. Over four million bottles of bubbles are produced across Tasmania so if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, now is the time.
Pirie the most awarded non-vintage sparkling in Australia
Pirie, the brother brand of Tamar Ridge is Australia’s most awarded non-vintage sparkling wine, and so a good place to start especially now they have released the newest addition, the Pirie Late Disgorged 2011. Quite a mouthful in more ways than one with its outstanding complexity and depth.
Pirie Late Disgorged has been 10 years in the making, spending the last decade on lees, and becoming Pirie’s first ten-year late disgorge wine from the iconic 2011 Tasmanian vintage.
Pirie Late Disgorged 2011 offers notes of cashew, citrus and brioche
A concentrated and classically structured wine, it’s designed to offer savoury complexity and elegance with a rich texture. The sparkling wine displays notes of cashew, citrus and dare we mention the French bread, brioche with a powerful palate before the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave the perfect balance.
Pirie Late Disgorged 2011 is ready to drink now and will continue to develop nicely over the next three years. The wine comes in a premium gift box and is ideal for special occasion or as a collector’s item.
Perhaps a trip to the cellar door is in order where one can picnic on lush lawns with a glass of wine overlooking the Tamar River. Just north of Launceston, the full range of Tamar Ridge wines and Pirie sparkling and be tasted or devoured as well as a range of Devil’s Corner.
Pirie Late Disgorged 2011 is available online at tamarridge.com.au for $145 per bottle.
