Food Pairings for Pipers Brook Pinot Noir
One of Australia’s groundbreaking cool climate pioneers, the first Pipers Brook vineyards were planted in 1974 on carefully selected sites along the north coast of Tasmania. Situated on the banks of the Tamar and Pipers Brook rivers, the winery’s stellar reputation is justified by uniformly high quality across the range. The wines continue to improve with each vintage in the very capable hands of long-term winemaker René Bezemer and viticulturalist Bruce McCormack. Pipers Brook remains at the forefront of innovation as home to one Australia’s most ambitious research projects, studying existing and new clones of Pinot and gauging the suitability of each to Tasmania's unique conditions. In general, seasonal grape-growing conditions in our vineyards are cool enough to endow this wine with vital components of the true varietal aroma of pinot noir - raspberries, cherries and violets. The 'Estate Pinot Noir' is ruby red in colour . Blackberries, plums and a hint of game sausage and truffles. The perfume of violets and deep, toasty French oak finishes with just a hint of rosemary. Velvety palate. The initial impact of the sweet berry fruit flavours in the mouth leads through to a dry, fine-grained tannin finish. Nutty, toasty French oak is neatly tucked into the flavour spectrum.
