Pierro Pinot Noir

Cracka Review

It is perfumed, has bright ripe brambly, mulberry flavours, excellent richness and intensity of flavour before a finish that show plenty of ripe, fine tannins though this is balanced by the power and weight of the fruit. It doesn't have the lushness or silky smoothness of the 2005, at this stage needing a bit of time to become softer and more velvety.

Pierro Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
Quite a spicy style of pinot from out west, this also carries some of the region's cooler accents with nettly bracken and green peppercorn nuances, scattered across bright, ripe red and dark fruits. The palate is firmly defined and structured, the edges cut into shape with sturdy tannins that frame berry and violet flavours. Long, fine finish.

Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
One of the best Pierro Pinots for a number of years. This is light bodied but with intensity and fruit concentration on the palate. The mix of sour cherry and light smoky spiciness is appealing from the initial sniff. The palate has a slight bony structure with fine integrated tannins supporting excellent supple fruit. This is a classy statement of Pinot that shows true varietal and structure character with some nice perfumes.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Meaty, smoky and herbaceous, this rather funky, complex and oily pinot noir presents a sappy, green-edged expression of candied, plummy fruit before a finish of capsicum and asparagus.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Herbaceous, slightly stale wool-like aromas of small berries and cherries with underlying meaty and vegetal influences, before an oily, soft and almost silky palate of lively currant and cherry flavours. Quite evolved and rustic.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Dusty, meaty wet wool aromas precede a firm palate of medium weight and some sweet berry fruit framed by drying tannins. Lacks freshness and vitality.
