Tournee du Sud Viognier 2017, Pays d'Oc

Sun-drenched peach and apricot characters, along with a merest hint of ginger and jasmine, lively and fresh 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

The wines for Tournée du Sud were sourced from a range of carefully selected suppliers across the south of France. The Viognier was carefully blended at Florensac at the end of last year by Beverly Tabbron MW and Steve Daniel and then bottled earlier this year to retain its freshness.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested once they had reached the perfect maturity levels. They were pressed immediately and the must was fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to prevent any oxidation of the pure Viognier flavours. The wine did not go through a malolactic fermentation and as a result the wine is pure, fresh and full of typical Viognier aromatics.

Tasting Note

The key with Viognier – one of the statement grapes of the south of France - is balance; this wine has a rapier-like acidity which complements the richness of the body to produce a wine of poise and balance.

Serving Suggestion

Very versatile and with enough depth to accompany many different meat and fish stews, including those with heavy sauces.

Grape

Viognier 90%, Chardonnay 10%
