    Wafts of dark chocolate, cedar and dried Italian mixed herbs are complemented by lifted red currants and mulberry. The palate is opulent yet focused. Ripe fruit abounds, balanced by mouth coating chalky tannin, which gives the wine texture and length. Ripe mulberry flavours intertwine with cacao and tobacco leaf.

    Producer

    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.

    Margaret River trailblazer Dr. Bill Pannell established Picardy in 1993 and also Moss Wood back in 1969.

    Probably my favourite wine from Picardy. Blackcurrant, raspberry, lead pencils, a little walnutty development (not sure if bottle specific) coming through, and some violet perfume. Medium bodied, again the lead pencil and earthy ‘minerality’, fine acidity, supple but insistent fine grained tannin, and a black tobacco laced finish of fine length. What a wonderful sophisticated drink this is. It’s sure to warm the heart of any Claret fancier, and to be sure, I can feel a pleasant glow as I taste and write.
