Fire Gully Chardonnay 2020

96+ Points - Stuart McCloskey “Another fabulous release from the Pierro team. The bouquet is taut, super-clean, wonderfully delineated with scents of citrus lemon, lemon curd, orange blossom and a judicious stroke of minerals. As you would expect, the palate is perfectly balanced and wonderfully poised. Given its tender age – it’s already showing a degree of complexity which runs from citrus lemon, saline, flint, the faintest soupçon of lime to orange zest and fresh ginger. Texturally, it’s on point and belies a wine of this value – there’s real depth and substance which will broaden over the next 3-6 years. Like the bouquet - this is taut and wonderfully fresh. Waves of energy and bucketloads of citrus saline which is a joy (very Margaret River). This should be filed under ‘a stonking bargain.’ Delicious in every sense. Served using Zalto Burgundy glassware which helps given its age. Decant for 20 mins or so and do not overchill…”

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.
