If it wasn't a full bodied powerful 14.5% Pinot I would think it was not made true to its style. But true to taste style it delivers - right upfront you get the sweet hit of vibrant dark cherry-like fruit and oak. And don't even think about drinking it without food. I loved it with barbecued chicken marinated in soy and honey, with grilled fennel and pumpkin. Good dose of acidity and tannin to handle the richer food too. Yes, tasty food and tasty wine. - Michael L

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.
