Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Picpoul Blanc (which translates to “lip-stinger”) is known for its bright, lemony character and razor sharp acidity. We picked this fruit fairly early (20.5 Brix) and arrested the fermentation with about 1⁄2% residual sugar to balance the impact of the grape’s high acid. This remarkably light and refreshing wine is more reminiscent of a lemon-lime soda pop than our typical white wines. A perfect pairing for a hot AZ day!
