Fire Gully Chardonnay

Fire Gully Chardonnay 2018

The Pierro wines have been part of the Daily Drop range for over 5 years, they are extremely well made (and grown). It was therefore not difficult for the Daily Drop Panel to add their Fire Gully Chardonnay to the overall offering. This is a beautiful Chardonnay, fine and delicate, yet it has just enough brioche and butterscotch to highlight the calibre of Margaret River Chardonnay, year after year.

Fire Gully Chardonnay 2018

"It kicks off with just the right amount of leesy, nutty notes wound around a core of very good fruit, mostly citrus with grapefruit pith and stone fruit; zesty acidity keeps it tightly coiled. While not the most complex, it's so well-composed that before you know it, the bottle is empty." 95 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion, 2018 (on the 2017 vintage).
