2018 Grangette Picpoul de Pinet Blanc Poule de Pic...$12.99
Notes of lemon, green apple, mandarin and passionfruit.   Great fruit and acidity give this one perfect balance.
From a 10 hectare plot of Picpoul grapes that were planted 12 years ago to clay/limestone soils and yielded 30 hectoliters per hectare. Fermented in stainless steel for one week followed by aging 4-5 months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.
Pronounced “peek-pool de pee-nay,” Picpoul de Pinet is a designation or cru which may be used within the Languedoc appellation for white wines made exclusively from Piquepoul blanc from six communes: Pinet, Mèze, Florensac, Castelnau-de-Guers, Montagnac and Pomérols. South of Montpellier not far from the border with Spain.
