The key to the success of the Pierro Chardonnay is attention to detail in the vineyard. It is sourced from blocks on the estate surrounding 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 are all from high density plantings, 4,000 to 5,500 vines per hectare. It was the deep roots of these mature vines that particularly flourished in the warm dry conditions.
"96 Points. That balance between finesse, fruit flavour and flinty struck match is just so spot on here. White peach, ripe lime, cashew and fine spicy oak. It’s juicy and intense, subtle honey and lemon curd richness, cool clean acidity, flinty and electric, light toasty oak and matchstick layering in complexity, and a very long spiced and lime drizzled finish. Beautiful wine, and for my tastes, pretty much in the zone now and over the next few years. Tasted: Feb20 Alcohol: 13.5% $85 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2025+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
