BOUTINOT FRANCE 12% ABV
Named after the olive groves or ‘oliviers’ that flourish around the sun-drenched vineyards of southern France, grapes for these wines come from carefully selected plots of Languedoc old vines.
Careful handling of the grapes, from site selection to cool fermentation, preserves the ripe fruit flavours and hint of tangy spice developed on the vine. Gentle pressing extracts a delicate pink colour and the wine is stored in stainless steel tanks before bottling to keep flavours defined and crisp.
Pale salmon pink with delicate aromas of meadow flowers, which carry through to the palate, where tangy red berry and ripe red fruit flavours are complimented by a touch of spice from the Cinsault.
Best served chilled with light fish dishes or Mediterranean salads.
