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 Tournée du Sud were sourced from a range of carefully selected suppliers across the South of France during repeated visits during the spring and summer, followed by more visits during the harvest. The initial blend for this wine was put together in our tasting room in early November, with the final blending by Beverly Tabbron MW and Steve Daniel, which took place towards the end of last year.

This wine has been lightly oaked, softening and adding complexity to the final wine.

This is an unusual and beautiful blend of Grenache and Pinot Noir, the earthiness of the Grenache being balanced by the elegance of the Pinot. Most red meats, pepper-based stews, cassoulet, wild boar and some fish dishes such as halibut and tuna.
