Lloyd Brothers Adelaide Hills Picpoul 2021

Special Price $24.00 Regular Price $25.00
Perhaps the perfect wine pairing with scallops, seared or ceviche! Picpoul is also known as Piquepoul, Picpoul de Pinet. It’s a rare and ancient varietal grown in France’s Rhone Valley, the Languedoc and Catalonia, Spain, in tiny quantities. It also pairs magnificently with seafood. This edition offers an explosion of lemon sherbet, lemon zest, hints of tinned tropical fruits, white blossoms, honeysuckle, and green apple. There’s minerality and salinity lurking too. Seared scallops, seared scallops, seared scallops!!!

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets.

This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing
