Bordeaux Supérieur "Ormiale" 2016
The signature wine “Ormiale” is vinified and bottled on the property as an appellation Bordeaux contrôlée under “Grand Vin de Bordeaux”. Shows Great finesse, black & red fruits, delicate fresh botanical herbs and green pepper spice.
The operation behind the making of this wine is entirely operated by hand! the Merlot vines are from 3 different parcels and the vines are aged between 15 and 70 years old. The Cabernet Franc vines are 40 years old. Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. Natural fermentation (with indigenous yeast) in big open barrel and stainless steel tank for 4 to 5 weeks. Ageing in an old oak barrel of 500L, 600L, 225L and stainless steel tank. No filtration, no fining.
In a nutshell, Ormiale is haute couture Bordeaux without needing the catwalks!
