From: Languedoc, France
Varietal: Grenache Noir
In 2004 winemaker Matthieu Torquebiau purchased approximately 10 hectares (almost 25 acres) of uncultivated land 820 feet above sea level with limestone soils, in the south of the Terrasses du Larzac AOP with a panoramic view of the Hérault valley. He named the estate Hermas, a word from the Occitan language spoken in the area that means wasteland. Torquebiau broke down larger stones into soil, cleared the stumps of old olive trees and other shrubs of the garrigue, and planted vines in the biodiverse soils there. After six long years of hard work and patience, the first vintage was born in 2009 and the first bottle sold in 2011: elegant, fresh, and expressive of the minerality present in the soils of the Terrasses du Larzac. Today Torquebiau vinifies three cuvées: a red, a white, and a rosé.
Tasting Notes: L’Hermas 2020 Rosé charms the nose with suggestions of fresh strawberry, tart raspberry, and slight hints of spice. The wine has a satisfying structure and freshness, and traces of strawberry meringue linger on the palate in a long finish.
Pairing: This wine is so versatile. Pair it with simple grilled meats or vegetables, baked lemon chicken, Mediterranean seafood dishes, a charcuterie and cheese platter (especially one with soft white cheeses), or even mildly spicy dishes.
