Bicknell FC is a family winemaking project of Dave Bicknell and Nicky Harris.
The project started with making random wines from interesting sites and, as
they've moved through the years, getting their eye in, so to speak, they have
settled into the good fortune of leasing one of those interesting sites.
The Pinot Noir currently available are from Val Stewart’s vineyard at the top
of the hill in Gladysdale. There is 1.0 Ha of chardonnay and 1.5 Ha of pinot
noir. It was planted in 1988 with 3,660 plants/Ha, and sits between 332-363m
ASL, in red volcanic soil.
This wine is bright and lifted with racy acidity. Full of dark cherry, violet
and anise. Also some meatines and a touch of spice. A very well-made, pure
expression of Pinot Noir.
