2019 Opi d’Aqui Massale11077
VARIETAL: Grenache Noir, Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne
REGION: Languedoc, FR
WINEMAKER: Philippe Formentin
"This light-red, smashable wine is made from three Grenache varieties (Grenache Noir, Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc) with the addition of 25% of Marsanne to add freshness.
Don’t judge this wine by the colour alone! Despite the light red colour, it has plenty of both texture and flavour. The four grape varieties provide an alluring complexity to this wine as well as a compelling texture. This is a perfect example of a wine that has been made with intelligence and skill to cater for the new wave of wine drinkers who want to be teased and excited by the wine, not assaulted!
The grapes have undergone cold carbonic maceration for 3 to 4 weeks before being transferred to stainless steel tanks for 6 months to produce a wine that will match with a wide range of foods or which can simply be sipped while sitting outside in the summer sun." - Living Wines
