Tasting notes

Picpoul Blanc is a Rhone varietal commonly associated with the Languedoc-Rousillon and Chateauneuf-du-Pape regions in Southern France. Picpoul Blanc loosely translates to Iip stinger, a reference to its natural high acidity. Although we traditionally use Picpoul Blanc as a blending grape, in special years we will bottle a standalone offering. This wine mimics its French counterpart in Picpoul de Pinet with a lean body and bright acidity. Aromas of crushed pineapple, key lime pie and orange blossoms lead to a light, silky palate with notes of pink grapefruit and lemon meringue. Enjoy this offering with bold cheeses, seafood, and cream-based pastas.
