2020 Picpoul Blanc
Windmill Vineyard - Organic
Native to southern France, the name means ‘lip stinger’ – a naturally high acid white grape perfect for our wine style.
We shifted a bit from how Picpoul is typically made and aged 90% of it in neutral puncheons (a double sized barrel). This gives the wine more richness in the finish and a luscious mouthfeel. Combine this with its bright lemony and grapefruit flavors and you have a thought provoking thirst quencher (it's possible)!
Only 8 barrels made. Only 10.9% alc. Farmed organically.
Need an excuse to get some oysters? This is it! Picpoul is a time-honored wine paired with oysters.
Windmill Vineyard 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 growing and organically farming an array of fruit trees.
