Picpoul gives this wine its bright, fresh acidity. Expect notes of crisp melon and orchard fruit with a zingy citrus.
Variety: 100% Picpoul
Vineyard: Rorick Heritage Vineyard
Location: Sierra Foothills, CA
A profound and unique expression of Picpoul. Zippy, bright and fresh. Notes of honeydew, crisp apple, fresh fig, lime juice and zest.
Hand-picked and foot tread before pressing, allowing for a small amount of pre-fermentation skin contact. Wine underwent a 12-month fermentation in all neutral oak before the wine was racked off its lees and left to rest for two additional months before bottling.
Rorick Heritage Vineyard, located in the Sierra Foothills of California, is all organically-farmed.
