Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2009 "South" Pinot Noir presents aromas of black cherries, red currants and freshly cracked black pepper with a hint of cloves. Medium bodied with great flavor concentration, it has crisp acidity, a medium level of grainy tannins and a long peppery finish. Drinking now, it should remain good to 2015.

Pirie Tasmania, Australia
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.

A large, climatically diverse country with incredibly diverse terrain, producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet. Most regions are concentrated in the south of the country with those inland experiencing warm, dry conditions and those in coastal areas receiving tropical, maritime or Mediterranean weather patterns. Australia has for several decades been at the forefront of winemaking technology and has widely adopted the use of screwcaps, even for some premium and ultra-premium bottles. Thanks to the country’s relatively agreeable climate throughout and the openness of its people, experimentation is common and ongoing.

Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety; Barossa Valley leads the way, producing exceptionally bold and supple versions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia's second most planted variety, can be blended with Shiraz but also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône Blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version and Semillon is often blended in Margaret River or shines on its own in the Hunter Valley. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria.
