Picpoul 2021

The Austin Winery

Just Picpoul - Single variety, One Elm Vineyard, High Plains, 2021. Native ferment, hand-picked, 2 days skin-contact, aged in stainless steel barrels. 12.5% alcohol. 125 cases.

We love a varietal wine. We especially love a varietal wine when we were able to tailor every step of the winemaking process to the individual characteristics of the grape. We love a varietal wine that is unobstructed in its expression of varietal and place. We love this Picpoul.

We lined up every possible variable for this wine and it's quality speaks for itself. The pick date, chemistry, specifically purchased barrels, short contact, bâtonnage - the list goes on. What you're left with is an expression of Picpoul that is remarkable unique and classic and totally distinct from the apple water you're used to from the variety.
