Ripe pineapple, crunchy green apple, white pepper, nettle and kiwi fruit, colour in the aromatically bright bouquet. The palate is striking for its pronounced minerality - limestone, brine and spice. Searing Pemby acidity swooshes across the palate lacing together the minerality and bright tropical fruit characters as it courses down the back of the throat. This is a glossy and complex Sav: a spicy, structured and mineral-laden wine practically screaming out for food. - Erin Larkin
Picardy is one of Australia's leading premium boutique wine producers, established in 1993 in the Pemberton region of Western Australia. Picardy is owned and operated by Bill, Sandra, and Dan Pannell. Bill and Sandra were pioneers of the Margaret River region, establishing Moss Wood vineyard and winery in 1969. Moss Wood went on to be a driving force in establishing Margaret River as one of Australia's important growing regions. Picardy strives to continue this tradition of wine making quality and excellence. Dan has grown up in the wine industry and completed a Bachelor's of Science (Oenology) at The University Of Adelaide. Picardy was named after a region east of Paris. A wine merchant and family friend noted that many of the great wines and wine regions have names beginning with the letter "P", Pomerol, Petrus, Pauillac and Pommard are examples. Picardy produces Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc wines. All wines bearing the Picardy label are entirely from our single vineyard property in Pemberton. Picardy is situated in the tranquil region of Pemberton on deep gravelly loamy soils. The region offers high altitude and close proximity to the ocean (for cooling summer breezes), thereby providing ideal conditions for cool climate wine production. In the vineyard, Picardy follows sustainable management practices. All Picardy fruit is all estate grown, unirrigated, cane-pruned and handpicked.
