Picnic Point is made for times like these. Sam Neill's entry level Pinot Noir, though by any measure, a praiseworthy effort. Each year Picnic Point release a limited amount of vintage, so you may find yourself on a journey bound for Central Otago to find it.

Picnic Point is a perennial favourite at Two Paddocks, the wine Sam Neill enjoys everyday! Central Otago presents its fair share of challenges to growers, the most notable being early frosts in Gibbston and late frosts in the Alexandra basin. The viticultural and winemaking team walk the vineyards at harvest, tasting the grapes to determine time for harvest. All grapes are hand picked, most bunches are de-stemmed and cold macerated for a week. Following completion of a wild, indigenous ferment, batches are treated to a further week of maceration on skins. Components are transferred to a selection of seasoned French medium toast barriques for ten months maturation, before racking and bottling.
Rich ruby colour. Brambles and plum up front, herbs and spice on the mid palate with savoury undertones. Redcurrant, bramble, wildflower and spice aromatics followed by a richly textured wine. Nice tension, flow and persistence. A splendid expression of Central Otago, elegant, complex and structured, full of the traditional qualities expected of fine Pinot Noir.
