Malbec Tournée du Sud grapes were cool fermented in concrete tanks with the vinification temperatures carefully monitored. Traditional maceration lasted 15 days. 10% of the Malbec Tournée du Sud was aged with oak for added complexity. During the sourcing of the Tournée du Sud wines in the spring and autumn of 2014, the Malbec proved particularly elusive, with some examples proving to be too rustic for the UK. Thankfully, Beverly Tabbron MW managed to find a supplier as we approached launch date and the rest as they say is history, with each subsequent vintage being as delicious as the first.
Tournée du Sud, 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.
