🍇 Grenache Blanc
Region: Northern Rhone, France
Domaine Ozil is a 5th generation polyculture farm in the southern Ardèche, which is now in the hands of two young & dynamic brothers Jean Daniel & Thomas Ozil. In 2013 Thomas joined the domaine, in order to get out of the coop (to which they sold most of their fruit) they decided to transform their grapes (make & bottle wine). With the guidance of Gilles Azzoni, they were able to have the confidence to make natural wine with no added sulfites. They also farm olives, peaches, lavender & vegetables on top of their 16 hectares of vines planted mainly to grenache, syrah, viognier, marsanne & cinsault. All the farming is certified organic and they also practice biodynamic farming.
Notes: A balanced white with green apple and toasty aromas. Not too sweet, great acidity & a delightful, long finish! Tasting notes: Golden apples, lychee, floral notes with a dash of cinnamon spice. Pair with garlic seafood, grilled zucchini & smoky BBQ.
