Gerard Bertrand Picpoul de Pinet Terroir 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

A complex nose, full of citrus and floral notes combined with white peach and exotic fruit layered with hints of honey. The palate is rich with zesty fruit and a livewire acidity which keeps your taste buds tingling. The finish is remarkably crisp, fresh and long.

Production Notes

To reduce the risk of oxidation, the grapes were picked at a time when the temperature was at its coolest, either during the night or very early in the morning. They are taken into the cellars as quickly as possible and pressed immediately in a pneumatic press. The musts were then left to ferment at low temperatures of 16 to 18°C, retaining the aromatic purity. The wine was aged on its fine lees, in stainless steel vats for approximately six months, giving the wine added depth and character. Bottling took place the following spring.
