On our Margerum Estate property in Los Olivos AVA, sits a block of Picpoul Blanc - a crucial component of our Estate M5 White blend. Picpoul means "lip stinger" and its flavors and aromas most definitely prove its name. It is one of the oldest grape varietals in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. We aimed to keep this old world style of wine when creating this single vineyard wine. We are, and have been, very excited about vintage 2019 and we are proud to release just 56 cases of this rare varietal.
