Bright lifted aromas of rose petals, fresh strawberry, spice and pouring cream. This wine represents the beauty of Tasmanian Pinot Noir, supported by the fresh zesty structure of Chardonnay. The palate is layered and rich, due to bottling aging on lees, balanced by refreshing natural acidity creating a sparkling wine of texture and poise
95 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Very youthful, light to medium pink colour. Fresh, clean, fruity aroma with strawberry, raspberry pinosity. A lovely wine, fresh and clean and alive. Sweetness is well-judged. Nothing special in terms of aged complexity, but a delicious sparkling wine"
93 Points - Jane Faulkner James Halliday's Wine Companion
"Chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meunier - percentages, and dosage, unknown. A copper blush; a sprightly, refreshing sparkling with red fruits, baking spices and a hint of wood smoke. Vibrant yet flavoursome and a lovely crisp, dry finish."
91 Point Rated - Tyson Stelzer James Halliday's Wine Companion
"61/24/15% pinot noir/ chardonnay/meunier. 2019 base (look for '19NIRO' in the bottling code near the shoulder to indicate this). The smartest bargain sparkling rosé is back on form in '19. There's nothing else within miles of this price with such elegance, character, texture and polish. Piper's River pinot takes the lead in signature rose petal, strawberry hull and raspberry, with precise balance of flesh and tension. Acidity, dosage and phenolics marry seamlessly with the texture that only méthode traditionnelle can produce. I love this cuvée."
Tasmanian Wine Show 2020
This non-vintage blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wine grapes is sourced from vineyard blocks of significant vine age, specifically established and managed for sparkling wine production in the Pipers Brook district. Clonal selections that produce large berries are favoured over those that produce smaller berries and would otherwise contribute greater phenolics to the base wine. Sites in the Pipers Brook district feature Ferrosol (volcanic) soils, also known as kraznozems. Basalt-derived, they have excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to vines. Vines are grown predominantly on cane pruned, Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises that are hedge-trimmed in summer to provide increased bunch exposure to the sun. Row-spacings are narrow, typically 1.5m-2.2m apart.
Selectively harvested in the cold morning hours across the Pipers River Region. The cool fruit was very carefully whole bunch pressed extracted only the most delicate juice. Cool fermented to retain the exemplary Tasmanian fruit characters and blended to create a wonderfully complex wine, the wine then underwent secondary fermentation in bottle to create a classical Tasmanian sparkling rose. Aged for over a year before release this wine has complexity and creaminess that only bottle fermentation of sparkling wines can deliver.
