Tasting note: With a delicately spiced, fruity nose, this wine has fresh, green apple fruit and is nicely rounded, with plenty of texture and ripe lemon acidity.
Food match: An ideal apéritif; even better when followed by a platter of seafood and grilled fish as would be traditional on the shores of the Étang de Thau, the famous oyster and mussel-filled saltwater lake close to Cave de l'Ormarine.

About Cave de l'Ormarine :
"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."
