It’s cabernet merlot with a little cabernet franc –hence the name LTCf. It’s medium bodied, with an effortless palate structure and focus to a long finish. Perfumed notes of black olive and red berry. The palate has a tight sinewy thread and fine-grained oak in support. It all comes together with firm chalky tannins and silky-smooth oak integration. Focused and long. It’s a wine that will continue to evolve.
The wines of Pierro are the culmination of passion, innovation, location, climate and time. Wherever our wines are enjoyed around the world today they invariably impart a tangible trace of their idyllic place of origin – warm southern climes, ancient soils, healthful vines and years of skilled hands-on viticulture and winemaking.
During his first vintage in Margaret River in 1979, Mike Peterkin introduced two wine styles which have become the mainstay of winemaking in the district: the first Australian semillon sauvignon blanc blend and the first to introduce a touch of cabernet franc and malbec to wines. Just as Pierro personifies life’s intricacies and passions, Pierro wine is a wonderfully complex balance of sensual and fascinating elements. In a world where mediocrity can become a pervasive norm, the wines of Pierro are a shining exception. It is no secret that care, and attention to detail and quality are the primary objectives at Pierro.
