Pierro Chardonnay 2020
First Lady of the PIERRO Household. Elegant, poised and refined with a fruity undertone, like any self-respecting Duchess. Her reputation precedes her from years of experience and loyalty to her style. At the party she extends a delicate hand to you in greeting, her white peach and nectarine skin lit up by a seamless smile and a playful citrus twinkle in her eye. She dresses in sumptuous layers of creamy silk, underpinned with a beautiful, steely structure and her flowing skirts trail behind her in a long, harmonious and elegant finish. Just a sip and she inclines her head gently over her shoulder as she walks away, leaving you with a lingering impression of purity, balance and underlying power that stays with you long after she has left the room.
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.
This is a wine of great finesse yet impressive power, tight structure yet generosity of flavour. Ripe melony, peachy characters yet noticeable restraint and subtlety. An unctuous mouth-feel yet with taut, fine acidity on the finish. It will start to be at its best about June 2022 and will continue to mature gracefully for another 10 years. An ideal accompaniment to seafood and white meat dishes. Ideal cellaring temperature is a constant 14-16 degrees celsius.
