McPherson Cellars Piquepoul blanc 2015

$14.99 (PA tax not included)

Rarely seen outside of the south of France, the Picpoul blanc grape seems to grow well to the hot Texan climate. Picpoul is actually French for “Lip-Stinger,” and this tart, snappy wine will show you why. Striking notes of ripe peach, apricot and white lily, with good tension and texture. Texas is making some great wines and this one will make you a believer!


The McPherson family has been a part of Texas grape growing and winemaking for over 40 years. McPherson Cellars was created to honor Winemaker Kim McPherson’s father Dr. Clinton “Doc” McPherson, a founder and pioneer of the modern Texas wine industry.

Kim’s Texas wines have won over 450 medals in state, national and international wine competitions. He continues to play an innovative and dynamic role in the development of the Texas wine industry. Kim and Doc were inducted into the Who’s Who in Food and Wine in Texas Hall of Fame in 1999. Kim converted the historic 1930s era Coca Cola bottling plant in downtown Lubbock into a winery and McPherson Cellars opened in fall 2008.
