Born of modest beginnings this wine produced by vineyard owned by actor Sam Neill (Jurasic park, The Hunt For Red October) and is a sterling example of a great value Central Otago Pinot Noir.

The second wine of the range it really offers a glimpse of the value for money that can be wrangled from the Central Otago. I shudder at the thought of what a Burgundy of this quality would cost.

The 2012 Picnic Pinot Noir is the second wine of Two Paddocks and comes in at a modest £19.95.  The wine, however, is anything but modest. The style is slightly more restrained than its bigger brother but the silky tannins and the higher level of acidity are a real treat.

Packed with lovely cherry and raspberry notes and refreshing acidity this is a nicely poised wine as comfortable with white meats as it is red.

87 Points from

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2009 Picnic Pinot Noir has aromas of black cherries, warm raspberry, cinnamon and cloves. Medium bodied and structured with a low to medium level of silky tannins and a refreshingly high level of acidity, there plenty of juicy fleshing the middle and lingering long into the finish. Drink it now to 2014.

Since their debut in 1999, Hollywood A-Lister and oenophile Sam Neill and winemaker Dean Shaw have fashioned a very natural, almost leafy style of Pinot Noir from their Gibbston and Alexandra Valley vineyards. The wines come across as far less ostentatious than their Central Otago peers and they tend to drink perfectly at 2-4 years of age.
