This is going to make me sound so stupid but, when I saw the name Picpoul, I thought it was a reference to sewing or knitting or something similar. Thankfully, we were at Coriole cellar door at the time and the lovely Velvet pulled out a bottle of this and set me straight.
It shows youth from the outset with a very pale straw colour. Great aromatics! If you didn’t know, you’d swear you were smelling a blended white. Gewurztraminer’s rose water mixed with Riesling’s lemon citrus. The palate is similar, but add some of Chardonnay’s stone fruit texture and you have a very nice, delicious wine that apparently partners well with oysters. I don’t do oysters but I can see this going very well with Thai food easily! It is truly a delightful little wine.
We thoroughly enjoyed this wine and it will easily invoke fun and frivolity with family and friends alike, I guarantee it.
