Tasmanian sparkling wine specialistsĀ Pirie have today released the newest addition to its range of premium wines with Pirie Late Disgorged 2011Ā ā€“ aĀ rare and exquisite cuvee that showcases outstanding complexity and depth.

Handcrafted in theĀ traditional methodĀ fromĀ select parcels of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes from the cool-climate slopes of Tasmaniaā€™s Tamar Valley where some of the worldā€™s finest sparkling wines are produced, Pirie Late Disgorged represents the highest quality wineĀ in the brandā€™s sparkling portfolio.

Pirie Late Disgorged has beenĀ 10 years in the making, spending the last decade on lees, and becoming Pirieā€™s first ten-year late disgorge wine from the iconic 2011 Tasmanian vintage.

Pirie Late Disgorged is a concentrated andĀ classically structured wine designed to offer savoury complexity and elegance with a rich texture. The sparkling wine displays notes of cashew, citrus and brioche with a powerful palate before the cool-climate Tasmanian acidity kicks in to leave the perfect balance.

Pirie Senior Winemaker Tom Wallace says Pirie Late Disgorged is a must-try for all wine drinkers, showcasing just how good sparkling wine from Tasmania can be.

ā€œItā€™s common knowledge among winemakers that Tasmaniaā€™s 2011 vintage is one to savour. Ten years on lees has been leading to this moment and Pirie Late Disgorged represents the pick of the vintage.ā€

ā€œThere is an immediate brightness and freshness of colour when you pour Pirie Late Disgorged into a glass. You drink it in with your eyes as the pale lemon colour fills the glass and fine bubbles rise to the top. The taste has flavours of lemon and creamy mousse that invites you to keep tasting more.ā€

ā€œPirie Late Disgorged is a highlight of what we are capable of making at Pirie and what we want to achieve. It will only ever be produced in very strong years with the best parcels of fruit,ā€ Mr Wallace said.

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 gifting or as a collectorā€™s item.
