Guthrie Picpoul Blanc Sierra Foothills 2020
With a loose translation of Picpoul as "lip stinger", you may expect this to be chalk full of mouth-puckering acidity, and you would be spot on. The acidity is tart and forceful, and purely palate cleansing with a refreshing quality of barely sweetened lemonade. White flowers, under ripe nectarine, pomelo, and touches of grass are framed by a medium weight mid-palate and more citrus. This is a defibrillator for a fatigued palate. Pair with ceviche.
