Last year I was away when Vintages released Picpoul, so I missed out. But not this year as the wine arrived early. So, what’s so good about Picpoul (a grape)? It compliments a Summer day in the same way as a ride with the top down, a cotton shirt or a green salad. Feels right – delivering a big hit of refreshment, and delicate teasing flavours. Think caressing Summer breezes. Get some and I’ll guarantee you’ll have the best Summer ever. Fab happy-hour, or alfresco lunch wine. Bring the south of France to your backyard, or patio.
