Blau – La Voluta 2019
old vines & young wines
A warming blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache Noir. A balanced natural wine with hints of cherry, blackberry and ripe plums. The harsh, arid conditions, with frequent and savage winds billowing in from the Pyrenees help to maintain natural acidity in the fruit without the need for additives. Finishing off with some black pepper and spices in the background from a short spell in oak casks. Pair with poultry, aged hard cheeses or a hearty bean stew with white pepper.
La Voluta – Anna and Jean Benoît
Anna and Jean Benoît met whilst working on organic farms in New Zealand, which is a subject close to our heart as this is also how Origin Organics was born. It was there where their winemaking journey began and they made their first vintage. After their travels they settled in the commune of Cucugnan and set up La Voluta. 6.5 hectares of vines in the wild and rugged hills between Maury and Cucugnan. They grow indigenous varieties, in particular old vine Grenache and Carignan, which are perfectly suited to this arid, mountainous Mediterranean region.

I ordered the prosecco and the olive oil. The Olive oil is delicious and fresh there are some lovely earthy flavours. I can taste the love it was made with! The prosecco was smooth and subtle perfect for a warm afternoon. It complimented my roasted veggies in the garden! It is wonderful to know these products were sourced from small farms and are made by passionate people.
Thank you so much!!
Very impressive first couple of orders – the still Prosecco was exquisite & the oil and balsamic vinegar bring that feeling of Mediterranean sunshine to our Yorkshire table.
