Overview

Introducing Pierrot - the family romantic, he secretly pines after the French Maid, who is oblivious to his sentiments. A somewhat naively trusting character, he is affectionately teased by his big sister, but takes solace in his book-learning. 12 months maturing in French oak, he spends much of this time improving his mind and developing his integrity as an artist. Somewhat shy at first, he proves himself a worthy companion over dinner, with a rich and flavoursome personality that enriches the evening. A most approachable young man, he offers quiet but thought-provoking nuances that leave you with something to think about. When the time comes for you to go home, he’ll more often than not take your arm in a gentle grip and leave you with a parting gesture that makes you smile as you step out into the night. An intriguing character, he inspires you to watch him age through the next decade to see what delights he might offer up.

Expert Reviews

Rating 95 - Ned Goodwin Australian Wine Companion Published 01 August 2017

Majestic in its elegance, this is very different to the Reserve. Redcurrant, sage, liquorice and a smidgeon of cedar oak are drawn long and sapid by finely ground chalky tannins and assuaging acidity. A gentle glide across the palate with just enough pucker to keep one coming back.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma & Palate

A delicious red with ripe sweet blackcurrant and bramble flavours with some mulberry notes – fresh, vibrant and concentrated. In a word, primal. It is lightly framed yet intense, silky smooth, even velvety and fleshy with underlying or restrained power and an enticing approachability. There’s also a youthful exuberance which is remarkable given it has some bottle age. Captures the style perfectly. A perfect example of the Cabernet Merlot blend.

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.
