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 grapes are grown for us by an eco-friendly producer, who uses sustainable agricultural practices in the vineyard. The vineyard sits at an elevated position, with clay and limestone soils, which impart elegance to the wine. As the daytime temperatures can be hot, harvesting is carried out at night, to keep the grapes cool, retain the freshness and avoid any oxidation of the berries.

WINEMAKING:
The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity levels and transported immediately to the winery where they were macerated and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The juice was cold settled and fermented with selected yeasts at low temperatures in stainless steel vats, to preserve the freshness and aromatics of the Picpoul Blanc variety. The carbon emissions are reduced in the winery by drawing energy from their vast bank of solar panels, which are used to power the refrigeration units used to keep the juice cool during maceration and fermentation.

TASTING NOTE:
A lovely, refreshing Picpoul with aromas of grapefruit, citrus, stone fruits and delicate notes of fresh acacia flowers on the nose. Great concentration on the palate, with a zingy acidity and unusual depth on the finish.
