SKU: PIRIESPKNV
The Pirie Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV offers aromas of crisp apples and citrus lift are balanced by bready and biscuity autolysis notes from lees ageing. On the palate, vibrant acidity adds drive to a full and rich mid-palate, vigorous mousse and a slaty, mineral persisting finish.

”55/45% chardonnay/pinot noir from the Tamar Valley; 2018 base vintage; 10% fermented and matured 2-6 months in older French oak barrels. Pirie's beloved, bargain-priced NV parades the depth and richness of Tamar chardonnay and pinot and boosts it confidently with the grand complexity of a touch of barrel fermentation. Its bombastic fruit presence is unheard of at this price, yet it never for a moment loses sight of tension and control. It's all here: baked apples, figs, ginger cake, even a glimpse of sautéed mushrooms on the close, thanks to the barrel's touch. Accurately directed lemon-juice acidity focuses a long finish. Well executed and ready to charm any crowd.”
