This wine is purposefully crafted to be more complex than Picpoul de Pinet, an enjoyable, but sometimes linear expression. With skin contact, extended elevage and bottle aging, they’ve created a more complex, layered expression. While it lives up to its translated name of ‘lip stinger’ the wine also has texture and depth, making it a great pairing ranging from oysters to crab. This vintage is very bright and vibrant, and can also be decanted for more complexity. Enjoy notes of meyer lemon, tangerine and green apple.

Grapes are destemmed and well crushed, and remain on the skins 2-4 hours. They are then pressed directly to fermentation vessels without settling and remain on the heavy lees for 5 months. Primary fermentation occurs naturally with no additions, indigenous yeast and native malolactic in 25% stainless steel and 75% neutral puncheon, heavy solids and no settling. Aged 10 months in 10% stainless steel and 90% neutral puncheon.

JMB Ranch is planted with a variety of production, organic fruit trees, providing a healthier bio-diverse growing environment, on alluvial, gravelly soils. Certified organic.
