Winery PIPERS BROOK VINEYARD

Langton’s Selections Pipers Brook Lyre Pinot Noir, Pipers Brook Riesling, Pipers Brook Reserve Chardonnay Originally a boutique winery founded by Dr Andrew Pirie, Pipers Brook followed a path of rapid expansion during the 1990s. In 2001 after having downsized its operation to once again concentrate on smaller scale winemaking, Pipers Brook became a takeover target. Kreglinger (Australia) Pty Ltd, a Belgium owned company primarily concerned with wool and sheep exports since 1893, is now the majority shareholder. It also owns vineyards in the emerging Mount Benson region on South Australia’s Limestone Coast. Pipers Brook Riesling is one of the better performing Rieslings outside the Clare and Eden Valleys, the fruit sourced primarily from Pipers Brook and Tamar Valley vineyards. Established in 1974 the Chardonnay vineyard is one of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in Australia. The vineyards are close planted (an unusual vineyard practice in Australia) on well-drained, gravelly soil

Pipers Brook Riesling is one of the better performing Rieslings outside the Clare and Eden Valleys, the fruit sourced primarily from Pipers Brook and Tamar Valley vineyards. Established in 1974 the Chardonnay vineyard is one of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in Australia. The vineyards are close planted (an unusual vineyard practice in Australia) on well-drained, gravelly soils. Vintage generally takes place in late April with cropping levels of approximately 2.5 tonnes per acre. The Opimium Cabernet – once a stalwart on the secondary wine market and re-badged Tamar – is now discontinued. The Lyre Pinot Noir (named after a trellising type) is Pipers Brook’s flagship wine. It is vinified in small open vats and macerated on skins for up to 15 days. The wine is then aged in French oak for around 16 months. The Reserve Pinot Noir, made along similar lines, is well regarded. The Summit Chardonnay, which is aged in oak for 18 months, is still made but has never really made much of an impact on the secondary wine market. Pipers Brook has re-invented itself in recent years. Under the Pipers Brook Vineyard label it releases a range of excellent varietals including Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Ninth Island brand is aimed at early drinking styles. Despite progress in the real primary markets, Pipers Brook has lost cachet on the secondary wine market. It’s much to do with the overall sentiment of the market which is highly focussed on cellaring red wines. In truth Pipers Brook makes some really good wines. At auction they can be something of a bargain – especially the old Opimiums! Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
