Mourvedre is a drought-hardy, robust red Mediterranean grape that can produce delicious, easy drinking rose and red wines if not over cropped. Originally planted as a blending option with Shiraz, we have found that straight Mourvedre is a great “summer red” that can be served chilled with a wide variety of matching foods.
Vibrant crimson in colour, with a sweet earthy nose and flavours of sour cherry and dark plum with light and juicy tannins to follow.
The wine was fermented on skins for 6 days at 22 degrees C using traditional open top fermenters, hand punchdown and pump-over, and a yeast strain guaranteed not to produce sulfites. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured briefly in steel tank prior to hand-bottling without fining, and with a light filtration.
