Tasting Notes

Aroms of green apple, honey dew melon, hazelnut. The palate shows lychee, lemon peel, green herbs, and wet rock, with balanced acid and a moderate body. This wine is truly special to Gramercy Cellars as few wineries in the USA produce varietally labeled Picpoul. They make a miniscule production of this wine and it is usually sold out within a very short amount of time.


Gramercy Cellars is an 8,000-case winery founded in 2005 by Master Sommelier Greg Harrington and his wife, Pam, to make Rhône and Bordeaux based wines in Washington State. They believe that great wines share common traits: great vineyards, small production, minimalist winemaking, time, and patience. Gramercy’s philosophy is simple: to develop or partner with the best vineyards, harvest ripe, not overripe, grapes, intervene minimally in the winemaking process, and use as little new oak as possible. The 2015 Gramercy Cellars Picpoul is certainly a one of a kind Washington white wine. Picpoul is typically a blending variety found in Southern Rhône white wines. These vines were originally brought to the US by Tablas Creek in California from the famed Château Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The Picpoul was supposed to be a one-time-only project for Gramercy, little did they know how well the Picpoul would turn out. Fermented in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation, the wine is racy. Think Pinot Grigio with attitude.
