There's no question that the mature vines (21 years old with this vintage) of the Pierro vineyard are making a difference to the reds from the estate. Mike Peterkin and the team have been working on tannin management for several years in order to achieve full ripeness without excessive alcohol ,and tannins that are ripe, fine and elegant.

This is a blend of cabernet sauvignon (63%), merlot (28%), cabernet franc (5%), and petit verdot 3% and malbec (1%) As usual, the components of the wine are identified in the vineyard and monitored in the barrel store.

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2009 vintage at Pierro has produced a style of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Reserve that is more medium-bodied, restrained and savoury. There's a brooding, briary quality to its aromatics, with complex and savoury rather than fruity flavours of black olive, charcuterie and minerals, an attractive smooth mid-palate, and neatly integrated, very fine tannins.

Food Matching

It's very much a food wine ideal with dishes such as osso buco ,or roast lamb with all the trimmings. Surprisingly approachable and so ready to drink now, it can also be cellared with confidence.

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.
