Winemaker's Notes:

2009's very low crops have provided strong color, pronounced bouquet and good fruit weight. White Hills' typical black cherry aromas are complemented by sweet plum and floral notes. The palate is full and textured with a plush mid palate which finishes sweet and clean. Age 1-3 years and serve in a big glass to capture the perfume.

About Pirie Tasmania:

Pirie Tasmania is the latest evolution of one man's belief that Tasmania can be one of the truly great wine regions of the world. As Australia's first PhD in viticulture, founder of Pipers Brook Vineyard (1973-2002) and more recently Pirie Estate and SOUTH labels (est 2004,) and recipient of the Australian Medal for his services to Tasmanian wine and tourism (2001,) Andrew Pirie's contribution to the industry is indisputable, as now is Tasmania's position as a jewel in the crown of Australian wine.
