Although it's only the third vintage of a Fire Gully Shiraz Viognier, the similarities betweeen the 2009 and 2010 wines suggests that a style, particular to the vineyard, is beginning to emerge. There are complex aromatics, more in the briary, wild herb spectrum, and more savoury, less overtly fruity flavours. The palate has the complex, gamey, charcuterie characters that were evident in the 2009 which in 2010 complement subtle ripe vibrant blackberry and mulberry flavours. It's smooth, pleasingly approachable and satisfying drinking.

The 2011 Fire Gully Shiraz Viognier is definitely the best so far.

Winery Tasting Notes


It has complex briary, black fruit aromatics, brambly, blackberry flavours, silky texture and subtle fine tannins.


There's depth, weight and power so it can be cellared with confidence. The brightness of the fruit and softness of the tannins means that those who drink now will be well pleased.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The wines of Pierro are the culmination of passion, innovation, location, climate and time. Wherever our wines are enjoyed around the world today they invariably impart a tangible trace of their idyllic place of origin - warm southern climes, ancient soils, healthful vines and years of skilled hands-on viticulture and winemaking.

We are fortunate in that our beautiful Willyabrup vineyard is located in what is widely regarded as amongst the finest wine grape growing terrain in the world. Located in the heart of Western Australia's renowned Margaret River wine region, this far-flung locality has a viticultural pedigree second to none.

The district is situated in the continent's deep south-west, a relatively young region unsullied by the impact of human population and development. Fresh air, clean seas, unspoiled country and fruitful earth have been simple, priceless qualities here for millennia.

Surrounded by open water on three sides between capes Leeuwin and Naturaliste, the wine region is almost completely free of pollutants and contaminants. Year-round it is swept by pure, cool sea breezes, blowing in off the Indian and Southern Oceans. Mild, wet winters and sun-splashed summer seasons add to the viticultural equation.

A stable and predictable Mediterranean maritime climate is a vigneron's dream-come-true, and Margaret River has this too. The vineyard is situated on the north-facing south bank of the Willyabrup Brook, a pristine freshet that meanders down its namesake valley to the sea.

Couple this with soils ideally suited to the needs of classic varietal grapevines and we find ourselves in a kind of viticultural paradise. Amid this marvellous terroir sits Pierro Margaret River Vineyards.
