Grape Variety: 50% Grenache, 50% Cinsault
Producer: Domaine du Petit Oratoire (Lori Haon)
Region: Gard, Southern Rhône, France
Wild Scale: 3/5
Winemaking: Organic Grenache and Cinsault grapes were hand harvested and fermented in concrete with indigenous yeast. No fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: A new wine from Lori is aways something exciting to receive. This is the juiciest of juice without a hint of tannin in sight. Comes in an Italian lemonade litre bottle with a crown cap but it's a still red. Drink it chilled in the sun!
Notes on the Winemaker: Lori Haon is a talented, young natural winemaker in the village of Valliguières, not far from Avignon who acquired his first vineyard in 2015. He is creating wines with a really fresh and light character which is not always easy in the heat of this region.
