A poised dry white wine, showing rich and crystalline

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.
