Every now and again, you taste a vintage of a wine you know well and think, 'This is stunning. I haven't seen a wine like this before.' That sums up the 2011 Pierro Chardonnay admirably. I don't believe we've seen a Pierro Chardonnay this good before. It's very much in style, reflecting that Willyabrup site as you'd expect it to. But there's something about it that takes this Margaret River classic to another level: perhaps it has greater depth of flavour and better harmony between its component parts.

It's most likely to be the harvest conditions that gives the wine its edge. Margaret River continued its run of stellar years with one of its driest and warmest summers on record. It was a very early harvest with spotlessly clean fruit unaffected by any disease. An outstanding vintage for the early picked whites.

Expert Reviews

Pale, bright straw-green; a high quality chardonnay, showing the marriage of elegance and generosity that Margaret River can achieve like no other Australian region; white peach, nectarine and fig use sleight of hand to push whatever amount of new French oak was used into the backdrop. Rating 96 - Drink by 2021 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2011 Pierro Chardonnay is primal with pure white tropical flavours providing its core. There is, however, so much more. The mouthfeel is enticing: unctuous, viscous and creamy before its tight structure leads to a refreshing cleansing zesty finish. There are delicate nutty characters and schisty minerally notes that give complexity and a more savoury flavour profile. Expect finesse, focus and power: balance and harmony, too, before a delicious tangy dryness that lingers.

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.
