About Tom and the Peloton: A Ventoux Syrah/ Grenache blend made by Irish owned winery Domaine des Anges. The wine was launched in memory of British rider Tom Simpson who lost his life on the mountain in 1967. A charming blend that is easy drinking with ripe fleshy red fruit and a hint of sweet spice.
What the press says: “A blend of Syrah and Grenache. It has tons of red fruit to the fore. Notes of spice come from the Syrah in the shape of subtle black pepper and the tiniest hint of liquorice. It has a lovely balanced nature and feels much lighter than the fairly hefty alcohol content might suggest. A very quaffable, easy drinking wine, it’s best served with stews or braises.” Cathal McBride, Sunday Business Post
