Picpoul de Pinet, France
A delicate and refreshing wine with notes of Mediteranean white peach, apricot and zesty lime peel.
One of only four significant producers of Picpoul de Pinet, this wine is both gentle and refreshing. With notes of Mediterranean white peach, apricot kernel and zesty lime peel culminating in a silky mouth-feel and crisp, vibrant acidity. This acidity is why the wine is known locally as the ‘Lip Stinger’. Picpoul de Pinet is not only splendid with seafood and shellfish but also traditional Mediterranean dishes, cheese and chocolate. It is best drunk young and cool, between 8-10°.
