Viognier 2015, Tournée du Sud, Pays d'Oc

Tasting Note

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

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 Tournee du Sud were sourced from a range of carefully selected suppliers across the south of France during repeated visits in the spring and summer of 2015, followed by more visits during the harvest. The Viognier was eventually put together at Florensac on 5th November by Beverly Tabbron MW and Steve Daniel and then bottled in March 2016.

Serving Suggestion

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