Pierro LTCF Cabernet Sauvignon

Pierro LTCF Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2014

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
Located in the heart of Western Australia’s renowned Margaret River wine region, Pierro has a viticultural pedigree second to none. Owned and managed by Dr Mike Peterkin, Pierro is widely considered one of Australia's leading Chardonnay makers, with their red wines now among the very best in the region - their 'LTCF' stands for 'little touch of cabernet franc'. A classic 'Bordeaux blend' of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%), this is a Margaret River red wine of impeccable quality, with rich, concentrated varietal flavours and high quality fine-grained tannins.

"95 Points. Majestic in its elegance, this is very different to the Reserve. Redcurrant, sage, liquorice and a smidgeon of cedar oak are drawn long and sapid by finely ground chalky tannins and assuaging acidity. A gentle glide across the palate with just enough pucker to keep one coming back. Drink By: 2034 Price: $40.00 Date Tasted: 02 Dec 2016 Alcohol: 14%"- Ned Goodwin, winecompanion.com.au.

"95/100. A very good example of this distinctive style and blend from Peterkin. The LTCf is a light touch of cab franc which brings a perfumed fragrance to the wine. It’s silky smooth and shows a seamless integration of the cabernet and merlot. This is clearly one of the best of this line from Peterkin. Love it. Cellar: 10 years" - Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2018.
