PALATE: The palate tells a story of freshness, flinty and rich in texture with crisp layers of citrus lingering on the creamy aftertaste.
An exceptional aperitif for exceptional occasions. Enjoy with smoked salmon, oysters or mushroom/olive tapenade (an Org de Rac speciality.
The grapes were picked by hand and whole-bunch pressed, using only the free-flow cuvée. 3% of the base wine was wood fermented.
At Org de Rac we have an aging regime of 2 – 3 years in a controlled temperature environment to enhance and maximise the ‘sur lie’ influence on the wine before degorgement takes place.
