2012 Picardy Pinot Noir

As I see it: a wine of three parts. Immediately, bigger rounder and softer than last year… at the front of the palate: Plump ripe red cherries, black pepper, sage leaf, hints of sweet sarsaparilla and ripe raspberry fruit - everything is neatly framed by toasted, spicy oak. The mid palate is full and soft and is where the fruit flavours intensify and concentrate, before the finish walks me through the familiar Picardy silky tannin structure, and lean dry finish that I so love. Slightly riper for this vintage (due to the warmer season), this wine is generous, appealing and full (despite its deceptive trademark light colour) and stylistically shows hints of Central Otago. This wine doesn’t need a year in bottle to open up - it is ready now, and it is delicious. ~ Erin Larkin
