Picpoul Blanc 2018

2018 Picpoul Blanc
Finally, we have more Picpoul Blanc this year to share with you! With just a few acres of this delightful grape planted in the U.S., our recently replanted estate vineyard produced some great Picpoul fruit this past Fall and it is already showing well in the bottle. Our little “lip stinger” is the perfect summer, by the pool wine. Lovely pineapple, lemon and jasmine flowers in a glass.

TASTING NOTES

This crisp white offers bright acidity with lovely aroma of crisp apple and pear with lemon and a faint violet scent; lean yet refreshingly silky and fine textured. We offer one of the very few bottlings in the U.S. of this unique wine.


VINEYARD NOTES

We grow 1.3 acres of Picpoul Blanc in our Estate Vineyard and follow the Lodi Rules certification for sustainable winegrowing. Harvested in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation, our grape clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region. Our climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhône with cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby giving our grapes their ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.


WINEMAKER NOTES

All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture their fresh, flavorful character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.
