Description

Mourvèdre is such a charismatic variety, particularly when it is encouraged to explore its full seductive potential. It is a variety that is difficult to stereotype as it exhibits both brooding ambition and an introverted decadence. This wine displays dense and interwoven layers of spice, tar and marzipan and treads a fine line between brutal power and restrained finesse.

Growing Conditions

Above average winter rainfall was followed by a cold, wet and windy spring. A dry, and relatively warm February to mid-April, allowed for even ripening and optimal development of flavour. The resultant wines are vibrant and fleshy with ripe, supple tannins and promise great longevity.
