Opi d'Aqui Poupoule 2020 Natural Wine
Picpoul is a legendary grape variety of the area around the coastal town of Sète in the Languedoc. Here it is often teamed with oysters and other seafood dishes such as the amazing local version of the pie called Tielle de Poulpe Sètoise which is braised octopus served in a bread-dough pastry.
The Picpoul grapes were picked by hand from a 1 hectare plot near Pinet (limestone and clay terroir) and placed in small 10 kg baskets. The grapes were then pressed and 50% of the juice transferred to tanks and 50% to old oak barrels for a period of 6 months. The wine was then bottled without filtration and without the addition of sulphites to ensure freshness.
This Picpoul is a lively, fresh and sharp. A white wine that can be enjoyed year round.
