"An outstanding chardonnay. With a bright light-yellow colour, it has a creamy lees and lemon/grapefruit aroma and a background of smoked chacuterie. Restrained and tense, delicate yet powerful, it has tremendous flavour and persistence.

- Gourmet Traveller, Oct 2018


 

"100% Chardonnay Handpicked, hand-sorted, gently whole-bunch pressed. Fermented and matured in French oak (50% new, 50% one year old). Malolactic secondary fermentation. Hand-stirred on the lees for 12 months.


Following on from the low yielding 2015 and 2016 vintages, 2017 saw a return to normal yields. Summer was cool and there was rain late in March, after the chardonnay harvest at PIERRO had been completed. The 2017 continues the remarkable consistency and quality that is PIERRO Chardonnay. More aromatic than usual with hints of apple, melon and butterscotch. The palate is delicate and intense with length and precision. A wine that will build complexity with age and will reward cellaring."
