Brims with fresh stone fruit and hints of bitterness. This is an orange wine with good body and tannic structure, ripe with flavors of orange peel, pitted apricot, mango and some friendly funk. Goes with a good chili or a summery grilled veg assortment.
Mas Théo is located in the little-known Southern Rhône appellation of Grignan-les-Adhemar. A family farm for several generations, Laurent Clapier took over the estate in 1999 and immediately converted to organic farming. His passion for winemaking grew and led him to create Mas Théo in 2005. The farms on the estate are managed with a deep respect for the land and as a result the wines show true terroir and preservation of the fruit character.
