Sourced from further north than most of the Tournee du Sud wines, this Malbec (Cot in Bordeaux) is a sturdy and powerfully scented wine which can definitely give Argentina a run for its money!
What a great concept - a Tour of the South of France - get out the vélo and let's join the touriste-routiers. But why be part of the peloton when you can attack from the front, and make wine which really matters and offer wine lovers liberté de choix? Hence, among the delights on offer here is a beautiful Picpoul de Pinet - the fish wine - a vivacious Grenache Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc blend and a quite beautiful and unusual Grenache/ Pinot Noir blend.
During the sourcing of the Tournee du Sud wines in spring and Autumn of 2015, the Malbec proved particularly elusive, with some examples proving to be too rustic for the UK. Thankfully, Beverly Tabbron MW managed to find a supplier as we approached launch date, and the blend was put together in late January 2016. The wine was then bottled in March 2016.
Cool fermented in stainless steel tanks.
