2019 Faux Picpoul Blanc

2019 Faux Picpoul Blanc

For the 2019 harvest we went back to the incomparable Matthew Rorick’s Heritage vineyard to source our Picpoul Blanc. This particular block was planted in 2007. Traditionally, Picpoul is known to thrive in vineyards perched on top of hills made of limestone which lend a distinct minerality. The high elevation climate of this site (2000 ft) combined with limestone and schist soils have the trademark characters that we relish in this lip stinger: generous aromatics, textural mouthfeel, and bright natural acidity. A late-ripening variety, Picpoul is one of the last picks at the ranch. We bring ours in at the same time as Matthew, around 20 to 21 brix. The wine was pressed whole cluster to neutral barrel and flex tank for fermentation and aging. No yeast or malolactic bacteria was used. Au natural, baby! We love it for its magical mash up of citrus, tropics, brine and minerality. Our recommendation is to back your hatchback up to a seafood store of your choosing, load it up with oysters, pick up a bag of frozen french fries, and embrace the holy trinity.
