The perfect match for seafood. We call this the Muscadet of the South grown close to the oyster beds in the South of France. This wine has a wonderful bouquet of citrus fruits and melon with a light, fresh and zesty palate and a touch of saltiness on the finish. Great with all Seafood especially prawns.

This Picpoul thrives on the chalky soil with proximity to the sea means cool maritime breezes making it ideal for growing this white grape. The freshness of this Picpoul is derived from night harvesting and its naturally high acidity is mahkes this winefresh and lively.
This grape‘s unusual name is a corruption of an earlier one ‘piquepoul‘, meaning ‘lipstinger‘, a reference to the wine‘s steely core of acidity. Native to and grown exclusively in France‘s Languedoc region it has shot to popularity on top UK wine lists in recent years. Although it comes in Noir and Gris variations these are rarely seen outside France. As well as being the namesake of the popular appellation Picpoul de Pinet, in the Midi it is used as a blending ingredient for Vermouth. When care is taken in the vineyard and winery, Picpoul is citrussy and fresh with pronounced minerality, making it delicious with seafood.
