Tasting Notes
Since we opened the winery in 2015, our Picpoul Blanc has been one of our most popular wines. It usually sells out in a couple months. That’s mostly because it’s delicious, but also because we’d only been able to source one ton (60 cases) of this varietal from Cimarron Vineyard every year. In the past few years we’ve been getting significantly more of this amazing varietal from Cimarron Vineyard Manager Juan Alba’s own vineyard – Dos Amigos. Now we have so much Picpoul we can make it in two styles. Unlike the 2023 Picpoul from Cimarron Vineyard, these grapes were picked a little riper (around 22.0 Brix instead of 20.4), and we allowed this one to complete fermentation leaving no residual sugar. This wine has a bright, lemony character and bracing acidity, which is a perfect pairing for a hot AZ day. We’re so happy to have more great Picpoul in the cellar!
