This recently released estate Picpoul Blanc, Camledge Vineyard from Bending Branch Winery is polished and balanced with a clean, layered finish. “Picpoul Blanc” means “lip stinger” for its bright acidity and does well in our Texas heat. Bending Branch was the first winery to plant Picpoul Blanc in Texas in 2009, producing its first estate Picpoul Blanc in 2011.

Enjoy this spring sipper that has floral aromas that mingle with pear, green apple and guava. It pairs beautifully with salmon with capers and butter, prosciutto and brie, herb roasted chicken, and pasta with grilled shrimp and pesto.

Available online and at the winery. $34
