Opi d'Aqui, Les Cliquets, 2019
One of the most revered natural wine producers in the world, Phillippe Formentin has crafted a cult winery in the south of France, celebrated for their no-nonsense approach to winemaking and the resulting wines.
Les Cliquets is made from 100% Grenache, but totally unlike other Grenache wines from the south of France that are typically rich, weighty versions. Phillippe uses carbonic maceration in the winemaking process for Les Cliquets which intensifies the fruitiness of the wine while preserving the freshness and incredible aromatic intensity.
Light red in the glass like a Pinot Noir with gorgeous strawberry and cherry aromatics and flavours. This is like an adult juice box! Super fragrant and with great acidity that brings total refreshment. A slight sense of a fizz on the palate that natural wine lovers will absolutely adore.
