For the team at Pierro, attention to detail in the vineyard is the factor which most clearly determines the success of the Pierro Chardonnay.   It is sourced mainly from a north facing block on the south bank of the Willyabrup Brook which flows down the valley to the nearby Indian Ocean. Mike Peterkin believes that this natural watercourse provides a nourishing life-source for the vineyard. The mature vines (25 to 30 years old in 2010) are from high density plantings, 4,000 to 5,500 vines per hectare.

Ripe lemon and lime, nectarine and pineapple, ginger and baking spice, nougat, pastry dough and aniseed. It’s a veritable powerhouse when it comes to flavour, floods the mouth, but also has a core of bright limey acidity through salted cashew, shortbread and brittle toffee richness. Chalky and flinty too, with extreme length. Oh, the power and the passion. Incredible Chardonnay. Date: May 2024; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $190; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2024-2035+; Rated: 97 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
