Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet appellation in the Hérault. Relatively recently incorporated in 1992, its history dates 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.
Cave de l'Ormarine's vineyards lie at approximately 40 metres above sea level on a chalky clay plateau, rich in Cretaceous limestone and quartz. The vineyards lie to the North of the Lac de Thau and slope towards it.
Cyril Payon is a meticulous winemaker and he carefully selects and picks his grapes at different times to capture different flavour profiles. They are de-stemmed and macerated on their skins followed by a fifteen-day fermentation without malolactic fermentation.
Slightly perfumed, ripe melon fruit on the nose. The palate is weighty and ripe but remains fresh and saline. This is the perfect example of the right grapes grown in the right terroir.
