Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Mas des Mas Picpoul de Pinet appears bright and pale lemon in colour, with exuberant amounts of tropical fruit, mingled with citrus, acacia and hawthorn blossom on the nose. The palate opens balanced and structured with lemon and lime, herbs and mouth filling green apple, finishing refreshingly dry with white blossom and even more citrus fruit. An excellent dry white that should be consumed young 1-3 years. Best served as an aperitif or with salty sea food.
