Profile

Smell

Riper fruit notes dominate the nose of this vintage, with ruby grapefruit, peach, and apricot in abundance. Hints of tropical fruit in the form of pineapple are joined by honeysuckle and Sauvignon Blanc's tell-tale gooseberry.

Taste

The flavours open with a pop of gooseberry, tart grapefruit and lemon zest. Bright citrus flavours, orange peel pith, green apple skin and under-ripe pineapple are balanced with plush flavours of white peach and other stone fruits. On the lighter side of medium bodied, the palate stays fresh with a mouthwatering acidity and a long, lingering finish.

Pairing

Use the wine's tangy zip to cut the richness of comfort food like homemade macaroni and cheese or creamy soups, or enjoy solo as a refreshing aperitif!

Aromas and Flavours

Grapefruit

As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.

Peach

Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Apricot

Stone fruit aroma which might need a little bit of glass-swirling for you to perceive it.

Pineapple

The sweet aroma of the tropics wafting from your glass - you can almost hear the waves crashing.

Description

We are beyond thrilled to be able to share a new vintage of this WineCollective Exclusive with our members! Once again, the quality and value of the wines of Ollieux Romanis make them too great to pass up, so when we were offered a repeat feature of this gem, it was an easy choice. Located just south of the village of Corbières, Ollieux Romanis is one of the largest privately owned wineries in the area. The first vines were planted in the 11th century, however the origins of the land dates back to about 8 centuries. In Roman times, the estate was a farm producing grains, olives and mutton. Realizing the potential in wine, the Durban-Latreille family planted the first vines. Soon after, a priory was formed on the estate and the domaine flourished as tending to the vines was part of the daily religious ritual for the monks.

Today, the estate is owned and operated by the Bories family. It is chalked full of interesting and unusual soil, including Mediterranean red clay, sandstone and puddingstone (rock made from coloured round pebbles mixed in sand/cement that gives the look of raisins in Christmas pudding). Beyond the requisites for Languedoc, the Bories also grow unapproved varietals, like Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy by 2023, at a well-chilled 8 C.
