Every year this wine is bright luscious and juicy. Satisfying. Elegant. This is no different. Black plum, blueberry, raspberry ‚– this is soft and juicy on the palate, the tannins are fine grained and balanced. The relatively low alcohol of 13.5% makes this a pleasure to drink. The fruit is quenching, the savoury oak frames the red and black fruits. This wine always comes off as so sweet on release due to the feel of it in the mouth and the plump red fruit; with age it softens and opens up. The texture morphs into a more gravelly mouthfeel and the sweet fruit gains in complexity. A very interesting wine to watch over time. - 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.
