Light, nice texture, bright fruit and no oak.
Picpoul as a variety is starting to gain some traction. People wanting something lighter than Chardonnay but not as green and racy as Sauvignon Blanc have begun dipping their toes in the pond of Picpoul. This organic offering comes from the South of France, (Pinet in fact) and offers tons of pure fresh fruit, a kiss of melon and citrus rind with just a tiny bit of river stone. Exactly the wine you want to have chilled on hand for the rest of these warm summer months.
