We dropped along to the PICA bar earlier in the week and taking advantage of the glorious weather sat outside under the spreading tree towards the back of the bar – sitting at one of the bench tables listening to the music piped through the speakers attached to branches of the tree.
The wine list at PICA is small – and written up on a blackboard behind the bar – but always has a good selection, and a definite emphasis on those of WA, so we can always find something we like.
A glass of Chatsfield rosé for Lady FWO, Robert Oakley Pemberton Riesling for me, while our daughter, who accompanied us this day, sipped on a Bird in the Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir while she dreamed of Nat Fyfe.
The rosé from Mt Barker has lifted red berry aromas, is bright pink and on the palate dry and crisp, with pronounced savoury tones.
From Adelaide Hills the pinot has strong strawberry and cherry aromas, strawberry flavours on the palate and with a fine and persistent bead.
And as for my Riesling, lemon notes on the nose are followed by lime and green apple elements on the palate, finishing long, crisp and dry.
For a refreshing drink, taking in the atmosphere and experiences of the Cultural precinct or just relaxing on sunny day, under the shade at PICA is a great place to hang out.
