Crisp, clean, refreshing white - with rare grapes that can only grow in one part of the world

    • Picpoul de Pinet is an incredibly rare grape native to one part of the south of France (Pinet, in fact). And it's blessed with a natural crispness that makes it a perfectly clean, refreshing white.
    • Ben uses his Angel funding to get exclusive parcels of grapes from his favorite viticulturist high up in the Mediterranean hillside, making your fruity, refreshingly crisp white. The kind that's picked up trophies at the Sud de France Top 100!
    • This is a quintessential seafood wine that'll impress everyone at the table – doubly so if you can pronounce the fancy French name (hint: peek-pool de peen eh).
    • This is a 2018 International Wine Challenge award-winning wine! And rightfully so...

Aging advice
No need to age as this wine is ready to be enjoyed - but it will be delicious in a year's time.
