Tanjuli Winery 2013 Estate Picpoul Blanc, Rattlesnake Hills, $18
Rattlesnake Hills vintner Tom Campbell was on the ground floor of what would become Covey Run and founded Horizon’s Edge Winery. More recently, he’s dedicated himself to showcasing some obscure grape varieties, including this underappreciated white that’s native to the Rhone Valley. His high-density planting of 1,640 vines per acre lead to a production of 2.6 tons per acre, which he put through a slow fermentation in stainless steel. That yields aromas of apricot, canteloupe, dusty orange, baked pear and spearmint. The drink brings a rich entry of ripe peach and Golden Delicious apple, followed by bold acidity and a flourish of starfruit, lemon oil and tangerine flavors. The Campbells suggest serving this with Chilean Sea bass or fish tacos.
