This is a wonderful Picpoul de Pinet alternative at a great price.
A blend of Piquepoul & Terret grapes from Languedoc-Roussillon.
It has the similar lemon, green apple & saline notes but with an added tropical fruit tang on the nose & palate. Dry, vibrant citrus flavours make this an ideal match for seafood & shellfish plus a very lunchtime friendly 12.5% alcohol.
The Florensac terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer benefiting from the cooling breezes that moderate the heat. Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils. The vines are harvested at night to preserve aromas and freshness. Once fermented the wine is aged on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees in order to bring out roundness & richness in texture to compliment the acidity.
