Expert Reviews

A bright hue and fragrant bouquet get the wine off to a flying start, but briary/savoury characters on the medium-bodied palate are unexpected, especially given the alcohol; retasting allows the red fruits underneath some airplay. Rating 93 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (NOV/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The L.T.Cf. shows the benefit of another outstanding vintage in Margaret River. It's very much in style with its soft-easy drinkability, medium-body, ripe cherry pastille and mulberry flavours, and gentle grip on the finish. The smooth tannin structure giving the wine the capacity to age further.

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.
