The 2020 version of the wine that launched Pierro into Aussie legend, the distinctive and unusual L.T.C. stands for ‘Little Touch of Chardonnay’ and reflects the convention-bucking nature of founder and winemaker Dr Mike Peterkin. A blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 41% Sémillon, and 9% Chardonnay, the L.T.C. is the national benchmark for Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc, the now-popular style Pierro originated way back in 1979. Crafted with hand-harvested grapes grown using natural farming techniques and picked in eight batches over the course of a month, it sings of the statuesque beauty and impeccable balance indicative of the remote, quietly majestic Margaret River.
Expect to find
Intense, keenly precise pops of passionfruit, pineapple, and lemon, underscored by a lush floor of freshly cut grass and a deeply pleasant minerality
Just 25 minutes south of Margaret River, you’ll find the Boranup Karri Forest, home to the third-tallest tree species on the planet. Take a scenic drive underneath the towering canopy, and then walk up to the spectacular Boranup Lookout.
Drink now or cellar until 2027
With white fish or your favourite soft cheese, and the classic notes of Pierro’s recommended musical accompaniment — Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker melody “Dance of the Reed Pipes” — playing softly in the background
The iconoclast of Margaret River
Pierro’s long tradition of shattering convention began in 1979, when Dr Mike Peterkin purchased a lush site next to the tranquil Wilyabrup Brook in Western Australia’s unspoiled Margaret River, where he proceeded to put his iconoclastic viticultural beliefs to the test — planting vines north-south rather than east-west, using irrigation smartly and sensibly, and halving the typical width between rows of plantings.
