Overview

There are plenty who believe that Margaret River is not cold enough to grow Pinot Noir and certainly few examples of the variety remain in production. Those that do have vignerons who firmly believe that it is possible to produce appealing examples of tricky grape variety in the region. Pierro has several things going for it, not the least a committed winemaker. Mike Peterkin is also quick to point out that the close-planted estate pinot vines are now heading into their 30th year and that the wine’s concentration of flavour comes from the low vigour associated with close planting. While Burgundian vineyards are traditionally close planted, this has only recently begun to gain acceptance in Australia. The work of the vineyard team on tannin ripeness, which has been refined by research at Pierro in recent years, is another key influence on the quality of the finished wine. Like the previous three releases of Pierro Pinot Noir (2008, 2007 and 2005), this also benefits enormously from an outstanding vintage in Willyabrup.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2009 Pierro Pinot has excellent varietal character; bright strawberry, pure raspberry, mulberry and brambly flavours, super smooth texture and seamless integration of fruit, restrained oak and ripe tannins. There is richness and concentration, good weight and balance and a fine, lingering finish.

In a word, delicious.

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.
