I have written before about the ubiquitous nature of supermarket Picpoul de Pinet: ‘ubiquitous’ because they pretty much all stock the identical wine from the same co-operative producer, but with a different label. Not so Lidl; this Picpoul comes from respected producer Ormarine, rather than the large local co-operative producer and has a little more complexity than most. It is also slightly cheaper…
Tasting notes: Initial nose of green apples, citrus. Fresh & refreshing. Green apples and lemon, lime and white flower notes. Balanced but zippy acidity, this wine works best with food. Short finish, a little intensity, a little more complexity than others. Good summer drinking.
