Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lots of mouth-watering grapefruit aromas and flavours on the nose and palate. Refreshing aperitif or companion to seafood. Green, lime, acidic: refreshing, and mouth-watering. Medium-bodied. Picpoul de Pinet is a grape varietal as well as an AOC wine. The grapes are grown on southern France's Mediterranean coast, though this comes off as very cool climate white wine: think Vinho Verde x 10.

Picpoul food pairings: wiener schnitzel and potato salad, pan-fried freshwater fish, oyster hotpot.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
