Picpoul de Pinet 2015, Tournée du Sud

Tasting Note

A steely, poised dry white wine, with an aura of lemon peel and flora on the nose. Great concentration on the palate, zingy acidity and unusual depth on the finish.

Producer Note

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.

Vineyard

This wine was sourced from long-standing suppliers in Montignac, following exhaustive searching throughout the Languedoc during the spring and summer. Final tweaking of the blend by Steve Daniel and Beverly Tabbron MW took place in December and the wine was bottled in the winery in early March.

Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures to preserve the freshness and aromatics of the Picpoul Blanc variety.

Serving Suggestion

Perfect as an apéritif or with shellfish, especially oysters, and pan-fried white fish and suits delicate sauces.
