Ormarine Picpoul de Pinet Acaciae 2020

Aromatic notes of white flowers, apple and pear are complemented by spicy notes leading to a crisp, fruity palate with a refreshing finish.

Producer Note - A region steeped in history, the vineyards of Pinet gained recognition as far back as Roman times when the Via Domitia traversed the vineyards, and in 1618 the Piquepoul variety was quoted by the famous botanist JB Magnol in his book Sylve Plantarium. The history of the Ormarine Cellars dates back one hundred years when in 1922 a group of winegrowers from Pinet gathered in the spirit of solidarity and formed a winegrowers association, with the aim of enhancing the quality of the white wine production in the region. Recognition came in 1985 when Picpoul de Pinet was classified as an AOC. The Ormarine Cellars have paved the way, producing crisp, refreshing fruit-driven wines from this fashionable appellation. 

Vintage - 2020 A good year with sufficient water to give a balanced charge on the vine and help to develop strong varietal characteristics.

Vineyard - The grapes come from the best plots among the Picpoul vineyards, which are located along the banks of the Étang de Thau in a Natura 2000 zone. The proximity of the sea significantly influences the climate and the soils. The climate is very hot and dry during the summer, which forces the vine’s roots deeper into the soil in search of minerals and water. However, the sea reduces the impact of the heat and the breezes help to limit drought conditions and hydric stress. The nearby Étang de Thau is the largest lagoon in the Languedoc region and acts as a heat regulator. The complex soils of the plateau consist of silts and clays; sands and sandstones; and pebbles and conglomerates. The vines are meticulously pruned to control the vigour of the vine and the yields. The vines are cultivated sustainably and Ormarine has been certified Terra Vitis since 2018. The use of sexual confusion is employed to limit predators, and careful use of sustainable treatments preserve the vines, vineyard and also the nearby oyster farms on the Étang de Thau. The grapes are carefully harvested at night.

Winemaking - Fermentation took place with selected yeasts using reductive techniques to ensure the aromatic quality of the fruit was preserved. Maturation lasted for four months in 400 litre Acacia barrels with regular bâtonnage, to impart texture and complexity to the wine. Unlike other woods, Acacia preserves the freshness that characterises Picpoul and gives great complexity. Winemaker Iain Munson MW and creator of the cuvée notes “Acacia wood accentuates the aromatic qualities of Picpoul and does not dominate the natural expression of the grape and its special terroir”.

Tasting Note - Aromatic notes of white flowers, apple and pear are complemented by spicy notes leading to a crisp, fruity palate with a refreshing finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
