Two Paddocks Picnic by Two Paddocks Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

Certified organic, the 2019 vintage (4*) was estate-grown at Bannockburn (46 per cent), Alexandra (36 per cent) and Gibbston (18 per cent), hand-picked and matured for nine months in mostly seasoned French oak barriques (4 per cent new). Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with very good depth of vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty oak adding complexity, and plenty of drink-young charm. Still very youthful, the 2020 vintage (4*) was hand-picked and French oak-aged. Deep, bright ruby, with fresh acidity and supple tannins, it is packed with cherryish, plummy, spicy flavours, gently seasoned with oak. Best drinking 2023+. Certified organic.
