Pierro Chardonnay 2015
The bouquet shows some intense cedary oak while the palate is tightly coiled, intense, wonderfully concentrated, with a fine line of bright natural acidity on a clean finish of significant length. There is a purity of fruit - especially grapefruit, white peach, white nectarine - tightness and power. The finish has that wonderful dry quality that is a hallmark of outstanding chardonnay. It will improve with impeccable cellaring: monitor its development and enjoy the journey.
The Wine Front – Gee, the Chardonnay from Pierro keeps getting better and better. All the power you’d expect from first class Margaret River Chardonnay, but with so much less baggage. Pear, lime and spicy cedar wood, struck match, white flowers and cashew. It’s full of flavour, yet flinty and fine too, with a superb cut of ripe lime acidity, beautiful spiced oak folded in to perfection, and a long pure finish that cascades down the neck. Absolute pleasure. What a wine!
