Pierro LTCF 2017

93 Points - Stuart McCloskey “The blend: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. All the boxes are ticked if you are seeking a refined and graceful wine that whispers its way around one’s palate. Softly-softly, classical and very fine. I enjoy the leafy / autumnal aromatics provided by the ‘little touch of Cabernet Franc.’ The plump, pillow-like shape to the wine will please many. I enjoy the menthol kick, cedar and lovely freshness. This is not a power packed wine – far from it. Neither is it a scrawny one. Everything is just right for a wine of this price and reflects the cool vintage. All-encompassing smoothness and the integration is faultless. Decanted for 2 hours (I'm not sure it’s necessary) and served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware. Drinking now…”

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.
