An interesting Grenache Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc blend, with traces of liquorice, anise and candied .
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.
The wines for Tournee du Sud were sourced from a carefully selected range of suppliers across the south of France, during repeated visits in the spring and summer of 2013, followed by more visits during the harvest time, ensuring optimla quality. Most of the growers have long-standing relationships with the importer's French winemaker, Michel Moreau. Final blending took place at Puilacher towards the end of last year and the wines were bottled earlier this year, to maximise the freshness of this fruity style.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures to retain the freshness and pure aromas of this fruity blend.
A stunning wine. The structure and richness of the Grenache is balanced by the minerality of the Sauvignon. A haunting melange of fragility and power, a wonderfully complex glass of wine.
Its depth allows many matchings: try roast turbot, tuna, tomato-based pasta, rabbit and most lightly sauced dishes.
