Description

This great value little dry white is the perfect mid-week quaffer.

Picpoul is a great alternative to crisp, dry whites such as Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. It grows best in Picpoul de Pinet, the region considered the best Appellation for Picpoul, with low vineyards based in sand that allow this old variety to express itself properly.

It's full of ripe, sunny fruit but finishes fresh and tight through the finish - making it a great all-rounder any day of the week.

If you're looking for an easy-drinking white to accompany a fresh plate of seafood, this little beauty for under $25 is going to fit the bill perfectly.

Pale yellow colour with brilliant green highlights. The nose is delicate and fresh with fruity and florals aromas. The palate gives lemon and florals hints very refreshing. Perfect as an aperitif, with cheese, or with a range of seafood, including scallops, lobster, grilled fish.

90 Points - "Super crisp and racy, lime juice and a little ginger, tingly minerality, bright and a bit powdery to finish. It’s really lovely, this. Clean and clear, lively and so very refreshing. I imagine oysters in its near future." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    The Perfect Aperitif

    In a word? Fresh.

    Crisp on the nose, slightly acidic with a little minerality at the end, and an irresistible oily mouthfeel. It just makes you want to go back for more.

    Delightful

    I've tried six Picpouls over the last few years in my ongoing discovery of the lesser known grape varieties. This is the best. Bright, clean, flavoursome, lightweight, just asking to be matched with seafood. The French are good at making these food friendly refreshing whites from lesser varieties like Picpoul, Jacquere, Gros and Petit Manseng. Nothing brilliant, just everyday wholesome.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
