Pierro Chardonnay 2019

98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “ ‘What’s the difference?’ I hear you say. Actually, and if you take the time, rather a lot. However, in a sniff test, I would love to see the Fire Gully served blind alongside the Pierro as the similarities are aligned, or are they? The immediate citrus impact and taut freshness brings the two wines together however, and with a little of one’s own poise, the Pierro provides multiple layers of depth which its sibling lacks. Each note is ramped-up – from the lemon (more confit than citrus), I detect sage, ripe pear, camomile, there’s a profusion of white flowers, the minerals feel charged and deep set. Citrus falls to a savouriness – the aromatics linger for minutes. This is a very beautiful Chardonnay and world-class… The palate exudes a gracefulness – the texture and mouthfeel is like silk. Again, confit lemon, quartz, slate, a little splash of saline with white pepper after a minute. Despite its finesse, the flavour builds rather than falls away. This is extraordinary. This has a personality all of its own. You can tell the winemakers all help to shape the wine along with the Margaret River terroir. Wonderful energy albeit at its own pace – this isn’t rushing for anybody. Effortless and beguiling and one of the best 2019 Margaret River Chardonnays on the market. Do not overchill. Decant for 30-minutes. Served using Zalto Burgundy glassware. Drink now to 2031+.”

Pierro

Pierro Chardonnay is without question, a world-class wine and has won so many awards over the years. Moreover, it is well entrenched in the top three Chardonnays of Australia. Notwithstanding the above accolades, the highly respected American magazine Wine & Spirits voted the Pierro Chardonnay the best in Australia, which and if truth be known, does not come as a surprise to those in the know! Pierro Vineyard lies in the central Willyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The fully mature ‘Gin Gin’ clone Chardonnay vines are closely spaced which increases relative humidity. The vineyard is very stony; at night the heat radiates back into the clusters of Chardonnay effectively burning off excessive levels of malic acid. Low levels of malic acid in the Chardonnay fruit means that the complex aromas and flavours derive from malo-lactic fermentation do not smother fruit definition. The wine is vinified in Burgundian fashion with barrel fermentation in new French oak, lees stirring (bâttonage) and lees contact. Doctor Mike Peterkin is able to combine a fastidious attention to detail with a relaxed approach. Pierro Chardonnay possesses incredible intensity, generosity, complexity and concentration.
