The Florensac terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the French Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer, situated just 10km inland from the Eastern shores of the Bassin de Thau. Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils, with sustainable agricultural practices rather than chemical intervention is at the heart of everything the Vignerons de Florensac do. Day time temperatures can be harsh so a machine harvest is carried out at night to avoid any oxidation of the grapes and to keep them cool.
Produced from 100% Picpoul de Pinet, following maceration the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, and the juice fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures using cultured yeasts. A pale lemon in colour with a hint of green, the wine has aromas of citrus and grapefruit with some stone fruit developing on the palate. Lively and refreshing with a lovely acidity and a vibrant finish.
Perfect with Seafood. Shellfish, Light Pasta Dishes and Soft Creamy Cheeses.
