Nick Butler, The Real Review "Maintaining a lively, youthful crimson-red hue. Violets and lifted red-berry aromas, subtle and assured. Cedar and toast, cinnamon and red licorice. An elegant less-is-more cabernet blend; plenty of raspberry and blueberry energy without straying into darker fruits. Tannins are finely-grained and ripe. Acidity in that same red-berry spectrum underwrites a promising future. Excellent."
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front “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.”
Decanter Magazine “There are so many top-drawer Margaret River Chardonnays, they could have filled half this list on their own: Cullen’s Kevin John, Leeuwin’s Art Series, Voyager, Moss Wood, Thompson Estate, McHenry Hohnen... But I’ve picked Pierro, a personal favourite. It’s a powerful, weighty wine that can carry its mighty oak (24 months, 65% new), with fresh acidity to offset the opulent tropical fruit and buttery popcorn notes on the seductive palate.”
