WINE SPECTATYOR 92 POINTS - " A lovely echo of hazelnut weaves in and out, while creamed pear and yellow apple fruit glides through. Lemon curd, brioche and verbena notes add range on the stylish and lengthy finish. Very seductive. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Viognier. Drink now through 2022."

The Saouma’s purchased a desolate plot of land in Orange in 2011. A minimal intervention approach combined with the image of the original barren land inspired the name of the wine, INOPIA, which translates to “made from nothing” in Latin. Soils: Predominately poor clay soil (3 feet) with little river stones called “Grès” (24 feet deep) which provide both favorable humidity for the dry climate and plenty of mineral elements. Farming: Seeing potential in the land, 11 grape varieties were planted in 2011 under high density (4,700 plants per hectare versus the normal 3,500) with the objective of quality low-yielding fruit. All vineyard work is done by hand. Grape Varieties: Mostly Grenache Blanc, along with a touch of Roussanne, Marsanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Viognier.
