Carrick Billet-Doux Pinot Noir 2022
Billet-Doux means love letter in French, and this love letter in a bottle from Carrick is so bloody charming. Tightly packed with lush, dark fruit and the faint suggestion of peat, this is generous Central Otago Pinot made naturally. Swoon.
Carrick is the full shebang in our books; wines produced from single-site, certified organic vineyards in one of the most beautiful wine growing regions in the world. Based in Bannockburn, Central Otago, winemaker Rosie Menzies and viticulturist Cliff Wickman head up the production of Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and of course Pinot Noir. From a recent visit, we sense this already excellent producer is going from strength to strength.
