Overview

The good fortune that Margaret river experienced in the previous two harvests continued in 2010 with another ideal growing season; a touch of rain when needed, cool, mild conditions, no extremes of temperature and moderate crops with exceptional flavour for cabernet sauvignon. It was the kind of season that may well have transformed Mike’s wry smile into a grin. It’s little brother, The Pierro LTC Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, might have attained near-legendary status, yet the LTCf too, is well established in the Pierro portfolio.

Expert Reviews

The colour is as good as that of the Reserve, and the fruit flavours riper - both a reflection of the higher alcohol, one assumes. Here the only question is a slight break in the line through the palate, and a year or two might well smooth this out. Rating 92 - Drink by2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

It is the soft, approachable red to drink while you wait for the Reserve Cabernet to be ready. This is the seventh release of the classic Bordeaux blend – cabernet sauvignon 54%, merlot 34%, as ever, with a little touch of cabernet franc (10%) and petit verdot and malbec (2%).

The 2010 LTCf shows the benefit of an outstanding vintage and is arguably the best example of the style yet produced at Pierro – having greater concentration of flavour and more power than most yet still showing the plushness of texture and approachability that is the mark of the wine.

There are ripe redcurrant and black plum aromatics, dense rich cassis, mulberry and bramble flavours. It is fleshy, silky smooth and finishes with a gentle grip from fine, restrained tannins.

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.
