Chardonnay 55%, Pinot Noir 45%
Serve with natural oysters for the perfect start to a meal or try it with richer fish like baked ocean trout or yellow fin tuna. The Pirie NV could also be enjoyed with a ripe brie and thinly sliced granny smith apple segments.
5% of the blend was fermented and matured in puncheons (500 Litre) French barrels for between 2 and 6 months.
This sparkling wine is a pale strawgold colour with a fine and persistent bead.
Bready and biscuity autolysis notes from lees ageing are balanced by crisp apples and citrus lift.
Vibrant lemony acidity adds drive to a full and rich mid-palate, vigorous mousse and a slaty, mineral persisting finish. Drinking well now it will continue to improve over the next 4 years.
The blend of the different wines used to make sparkling wine is called the cuvée. Premium cuvée for sparkling wine is made from various combinations of the grape varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. When grown in areas that experience cool ripening conditions, the varieties produce sparkling wines of finesse, elegance and delicacy of flavour. The ultimate factor that determines overall quality in the production of sparkling wines is the grape varieties represented in the various parcels of wine for blending. Pinot Noir provides the backbone to many sparkling wines, with fullness, weight and length to the palate. While Chardonnay from cool regions provides finesse, lightness and elegance and on tasting is detectable initially due to its aromatic lift and relatively high fruit intensity.
