2018 Picpoul Blanc
Front label
Back

Our first release of Picpoul, a quite rare variety in California. Farmed organically.  Native to southern France, the name means ‘lip stinger’ – a naturally high acid white grape perfect for our wine style. This 6 barrel lot was fermented and aged in 50% stainless steel, and 50% neutral puncheon (double sized barrel)) for 8 months. Mouthwatering acidity, weight and aromatics. 11.3% alc. 

Windmill Vineyard is a new partner for us for 4 varietals, in the Dunnigan Hills AVA. Besides widely planted to many Rhone and Bordeaux varieties, it’s rolling hills and gravelly alluvial soils has a wonderful polyculture also growing and farming organically an array of fruit trees.
