Fermented with natural yeasts and close to no sulphur this is a fab little white from the Languedoc. Lovely freshness and bright acidity with light citrus notes and a floral almost Rhone-esque quality. Enough body thanks to the alcohol to go well with food or just enjoy on its own.

About the producer: Ollieux Romanis is a magnificent property with a huge winery nestling at the centre of its vines. The winery and wine cellar were built in 1896; these buildings were built from stone quarried from within the property and they still stand proud today. The first parcel of Carignan was planted in 1896, and it is still used for production of grapes today. The Carignan grape variety has become the leitmotif of the Bories family - Pierre’s mother, Jacqueline, who was the winemaker in the 1970’s resisted all the hype that grew up in the 1970’s around the Syrah grape, and highlighted the Carignan grape in her wines. It is still the case for Pierre and his team.
