Coriole Picpoul 2015

Great to see this variety being produced in Australia now. This is the first commercial bottling of the variety I am aware of. The vines were imported in 2008, planted in 2011. This, the second vintage of the wine, the first in 2014 saw a mere 40L made and in 2015 that was increased to 150 dozen.

Rock melon, ripe pear, a little stonefruit kernel, alpine glade/ resin. 

Palate sees a little fleshiness, acidity (variety famed for), mineral, segues to a little white pepper; fresh and refreshing. Arm yourself with half a dozen bottles (if it wasn't sold out!) and gather round a table to share with friends.

Good finish, length, dry. A fantastic addition to the Australian wine scene. 92
