Planted by Tasmanian pioneer Dr Andrew Pirie in 1998, Bird Vineyard is in the Pipers River region in the north east of Tasmania. Thanks to the generosity of the team at Pipers Brook, we are lucky to get a lovely parcel of clone 114 Pinot from the Bird Vineyard. Red fruit with spicey aromatics. Bird is the most elegant and ethereal of our line up. The ‘gateway Pinot’ as we fondly call it.
