95 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2021
The grapes used to make this wine were grown in the cool-climate vineyards of northern Tasmania. The wine is a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Pirie Vintage is showing bright, golden colours with hints of green at the edges. The aromas present some lovely lemon zest on the nose that is underlined by creamy and yeasty complexity. The palate is quite rich initially until the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave a perfect balance. This wine is ready to drink now and will continue to develop nicely over the next 4 years.
