Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint greenish tinge around the edges and a watery hue. Attractive pear, lime and green apple aromas intermingle with fresh herb and stony mineral notes. Vivid pear, lime and crunchy green apple fruits have a racy feel across the scrumptious palate with traces of musk, wet stone and minerals lying underneath. Finishes dry with crisp acidity lending an energetic feel to the aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.

Other Reviews….
The classic match for oysters, though I’d rather drink the wine and leave the oysters to someone else. So much crunch and brine, with green apple, lemon zest and some floral top notes. It’s very stony and dry, but delivers a good amount of flavour, and the finish has some raw almond and grapefruity bite. Delightful thirst slaking wine. Drink 2023-2028+

Gary Walsh – The Wine Front

Piquepoul is known for its retention of acidity in the hot Mediterranean climate of southern France, and it brings that quality to McLaren Vale, where the Lloyd family regards it as a favourite variety. Its acidity is coupled with a lemony flavour in this iteration. Drink to 2029.
