Pirie Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
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.

Andrew Pirie's Estate pinot is a refined and restrained style, really nicely understated and keenly detailed. This has bright red cherry and berry aromas, with gentle spice and a little earthy nuance too. The palate is direct and linear wjth slightly confected red fruit flavour and crisp, chirpy acid. Fresh and balanced, discreet and even, with good length and svelte shape.

Bright, clear colour and hue; firm, finely focused and structured plum and black cherry are dominant on a long palate and finish. Will develop.

Bright, deep hue; a lively, fresh palate with good weight and good length.

Andrew Pirie's flagship pinot is from south of Launceston. Simple red cherries and cool brambly fruit aromas open to fine-pointed aromatics; sweet spicy oak laid in low lets the fine cherry fruit sit up nice and bright. The palate has brisk acid crunch and fine fruit-derived tannins, ripe red cherry flavour, cool shape and precise lines, long and fine.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Very deep colour; powerful, plummy fruit; curiously, not extractive; ripeness may have been an issue.

Fragrant red fruits; supple cherry and plum flavours, super-smooth, yet not simple, mouthfeel; good length.
