2023 is our ninth release of Piquepoul - we were the first to grow Piquepoul in Australia.
The nose is spritely and fresh showing fresh lemon, cypress and white nectarine.
The palate is fine and long with fresh acidity providing drive and texture, flavours of citrus blossom, jasmine flower and wet stone leaving the palate craving seafood, natural oysters especially!
James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2022 - The Australian
"So much crunch and brine, with green apple, lemon zest and some floral top notes. It’s very stony and dry, but delivers a good amount of flavour, and the finish has some raw almond and grapefruity bite. Delightful thirst slaking wine. 93 points"
Gary Walsh, Winefront
"Despite a relatively low alcohol of just under 12 per cent, there’s good ripe fruit in here – pulpy fresh green grapes – and a touch of creamy richness before the variety’s trademark, oyster-loving acidity kicks in. Try with freshly shucked Sydney Rocks."
Max Allen, Australian Financial Review
"This engaging Piquepoul delivers a precise core of lemon rind, almond skin laced with potpourri and saline. Great savoury impact before building through to a long, drying finish. 93 points"
