PIERRO VINTAGE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

Many rightly look to Pierro for their highly distinguished Chardonnay but it is the Cabernet that has been the real  focus at the estate over the past 15 years, in an effort to be seen as more than just a Chardonnay producer.

This Vintage Reserve proves beyond all doubt that Pierro is at the head of the elite Cabernet producers in Margaret River, and perhaps found a purity that others have not. This release is the culmination of 40 years of tradition and experience at Pierro, coming from the best barrels of the best parcels of old vines and released after 5 years ageing in the winery.

"91 % cabernet sauvignon, 6% malbec, 3% petit verdot. 18 months in 100% new French oak; 96 dozen made. It's a vinous example of pure silk. It's the job of the wine writer to taste, spit and repeat but one sip of this and the process quickly became muddled. It's a wine to put other wines in context. It has a freshness and a perfume to its herb notes and a gentleness to its redcurrant and kirsh-like flavours. It glides through the palate like a waft of smoke, the fruit ripe and pure. It's almost pinot-like in its ease, its undergrowth, its succulent power." JAMES HALLIDAY
