Clean and bright, this aromatic wine is full of vibrant fresh fruit. Aromas of peach, mango, pineapple and pear intermingle and follow through onto the palate which is balanced and long.
The Vignes de L’Eglise wines have a purity and elegance that are hard to find at entry-level and represent superb value. The Picpoul de Pinet region of the Languedoc benefits from a sunny, warm climate that encourages ripe flavours in the wines, while the coastal breezes help retain freshness and aromatics. From the 2009 harvest, the Vignes de L’Eglise wines have been made exclusively for Liberty Wines by Matt Thomson and his colleague Graeme Paul at the excellent Cave de Pomérols co-operative. The Cave de Pomérols co-operative has 1,650 hectares and 450 growers in the Picpoul de Pinet region. Each parcel of grapes is chosen individually, based on flavour and ripeness, to ensure that the flavours identified in the grapes are captured in the finished wine. The red clay soils around the village of Pomérols encourage richness and depth in the red varieties, and the grapes are harvested at night to preserve their aromas and flavours.
