Light, crisp and dry white from the south of France, this lovely and fresh Picpoul has plentiful aromas of grapefruit and citrus fruit as well as bracing citrus and stone fruit flavours and a refreshing finish. If you usually drink Pinot Grigio or Vinho Verde, give this a try.
Try this with oysters and lighter seafood dishes.
"This used to be the kind of wine you only found on holiday, but it's now become one of our bestsellers. It's fresh lively and vivacious and an easy choice for serving with seafood or just sipping in the garden."
Made by the Vignerons de Florensac whose terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer benefiting from the cooling breezes that moderate the heat.
Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils. The vines are night harvested in order to preserve aromas and freshness. Once fermented the wine is aged on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees in order to bring out richness and roundness.
