Tasted with Dan Pannell at the Picardy winery in Pemberton, Western Australia.
Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014
Lovely delicate oyster shell notes, nice lychee lime and kiwi. Bit of bite and crunchy acidity, papaya apple, excellent balance and a nice textural nuttiness.
Deep ripe citrus apricot nice openness. Quite ripe barrel fermented notes, toasty nutty texture, but good fruit and acidity to balance.
Pinot Noir 2013
Beautiful, bright fresh clean, lovely balance of fruit and some mature green notes, perfect integrity and intensity.
2014 Merlot cabernet Sauvignon
Bold dark juicy but light and vibrant, sitting exceptionally well in the mid palate, nice bite hints of sour pomegranate and dark cherry, wonderfully drinkable but with poise.
A bit closed, shy and reductive, dark on the nose. Tight lean focused classic cool climate fruit profile, nice tight but generous tannins, fresh, needs to settle in bottle a bit.
