Pierro 'VR' Chardonnay
Pierro ‘VR’ ‘Vintage Reserve) wordt enkel gemaakt in jaargangen dat de wijngaarden het allerbeste fruit produceren. Gelukkig dankzij het milde klimaat is dat meestal. ‘Balance is all, if it’s not perfect there is no VR’ zegt wijnmaker Michael Peterkin. ‘The VR is a selection of the finest free run juices from old vines in prime areas of the vineyard and further refined by barrel selection. 2017 was in het prachtige Margaret River een groot iets koeler millésime. Een fenomenale wijn met eveneens zéér goed bewaarpotentiëel. Cellar Door: Excellent coulour and condition with green/gold tones which are always indicators of something special to follow. The wine is bright and clear and of medium to full body. The bouquet, notwithstanding is three years of age, is still very much in its infancy and still coming together (very positively) with attractive fruit and oak nuances. It has the tell-tale citrus elements of high quality Chardonnay. The palate is superb, and one has difficulty in selecting adjectives for what must be the perfect experience. The management of the fruit is a great tribute to the maker. It has length and intensity of a thoroughbred – may well be the best the line thus far. If serendipity has a flavour profile, here it is abundance! Needs another 10-12 years to show its refined glry.
Erin LarkinThe 5th vintage ever made. Most winemakers might choose to stagger the picking dates of their premium wines across 2, 3 or 4 picks. From the oldest vines in the best parts of the vineyard, the harvest for this wine was completed after 11 passes. A staggeringly complex wine with layer upon layer of flavor and texture, all working in concert with each other to achieve one goal: excellence. The waves of flavour ripple across the mouth and seep into the soul. Exceptional.
