Pierro Chardonnay 2019
For those who got it right, it seems 2019 was a very good vintage in Margaret River for Chardonnay. Pierro got it right.
Beautiful concentration and intensity. It’s slippery and glossy, but has delicious fine acid cutting through. I’m thinking lime and pear, nougat, and cougar-like poise and power. Sage and butter, pink grapefruit and spice. Finish is long and tight and offers gentle grip as it goes. Welcome to the pleasure zone. You have country and western here. Great Chardonnay.
