Tasting Notes: Nicknamed 'la bomba' for its incredibly fruity and concentrated characters. Floral and enticing on the nose, exuberantly fresh on the palate with pear drop fruit, a slightly salty edge and underlying minerality. Nicknamed 'la bomba' this is incredibly fruity and concentrated Picpoul - yet still fine and elegant, with a very long finish.

Producer Details: Cave de l'Ormarine is an award winning Cave producing wines from the tiny Pinet appellation, in the Hérault. Set up in 1992, but with a history dating back to 1922 Cave de l'Ormarine has made significant investment in the winery, and prides itself on the high standard and traceability of its grapes.

In The Vineyard: Picpoul de Pinet is a tiny appellation in the commune of Herault. Cave de l'Ormarine's vineyards lie at apporoximately 40 metres above sea level on a chalky clay plateaux, rich in Cretaceous limestone and loaded with quartz gravel chippings. To the North, the vineyards are dominated by limestone hills that date from the Jurassic Period. The vineyards lie to the North of Thau Lake and slope towards it.

In The Winery: Picpoul grapes are carefully selected, de-stemmed and macerated on their skins. Racking lasts for 24 hours, followed by a fifteen day fermentation during which malo-lactic fermentation is blocked. The wine is fined and filtered before being bottled in the traditional fluted bottle.
