Overview

While the Catalan grape name Picapolla seems to imply that this variety is Picpoul, recent research and study indicate that it is either Clairette or a variety very closely related. It has been in this part of Spain long enough to have acquired a misleading name. Prized for its ability to retain acidity in even the warmest climates, it is ideally suited to the parts of Mas Marés closest to the sea to accentuate its innate minerality and delicate saline expression.
