The Oddbins Take

Many of you may be under the impression that this wine is named after the experience of trying to bake a pie but being distracted by the delicious Syrah you happen to be sipping (responsibly), you forget to put a lid on it. When you go to take your 'pie' out of the oven you find you've been left with a mere heap of stew in a pastry bowl. To which, you exclaim to your waiting dinner guests "No it's happened again; my pie's bald!"
If you genuinely think that's what this wine is named for, unfortunately you may be as unhinged as we are. No, piebald actually means an animal that is coloured both black and white, like a cow... or a Panda... or a Dove that works in a mine. This beautiful wine is aptly named as is made from a blend of black Syrah grapes and white Viognier grapes. It presents a hazy fume of all the darker fruits of the forest combined with the fresh turned earth from which they have grown; lusty, intense and fine. Violets protrude to the point of pollen and return visits to the glass discover anise and dried spice. Pairs lovely with both lidded and lidless pies.
