"Son terroir, c'est la mer (Its terroir is the sea)."
Tasting Notes: Yellow with bright highlights, generous notes of white fruits and citrus. Well balanced and lively on the palate with delicate lemony notes.
Picked at optimum ripeness, balancing phenolics and acidity then cool vinified to enhance the fresh fruit flavours. No oak was used to keep this wine as pure and sensual as possible.
Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet de Picpoul appellation in the Hérault. The Ormarine cellar was established in 1922 when vignerons from Pinet joined forces and formed a winegrowers' association. Today, the Cave de l'Ormarine is a conglomeration of five separate co-operatives from across the Hérault, each with their own specific terroirs and styles of wine. It is proud to have 470 members farming more than 2,500 hectares of vines.
From vines which grow near Southern France's Bassan de Thau, famed for the quailty of its oysters and mussels, the freshness of this wine is the perfect match for shellfish, seafood or grilled fish.
