Mas del Perie Pieces Longues 2016
Cahors is a small appellation in SW France where Malbec is the main grape variety. The winemaker here is a bit of a character with a full-on bushy beard and slight revolutionary tendencies. When the AOC authorities told him to pull up his Jurancon Noir vines he went and bottle it by itself and named it 'You F*** my Wine'. Yup, that's our kind of winemaker.
This is made from 100% Chenin Blanc, fermented and aged in old oak barrels. Sweet red apple and white flowers with a touch of smokyness. The acidity is softer and the style is a bit richer compare to a Loire Chenin, and absolutely delicious.
