In 1773, Turgot, one of Louis XVI's future ministers, gave permission for each barrel of the local wine to be branded with a red-hot branding iron with a sign marking the quality of the Pinet vineyards. Today, the Master Winemakers of the Ormarine Winery are perpetuating this centuries-old tradition and legendary history with considerable success.
Bright straw colour. Flavours of citrus, tropical fruits and subtle floral aromas. The mouth is intensly refreshing and well balanced, showing lovely floral fruit and minerality and layered with zesty acidity.
Enjoy with a traditional prawn cocktail.
The harvest starts early September in order to get golden ripe grapes with a fresh acidity. The grapes are destemmed, pressed and cooled at 10 °C. Within 24 hours, the juice gets statically clarified and is then sent to fermentation which lasts 10 to 15 days.
