Description

Mourvédre plays an important role in many of our red wines. It contributes an earthy complexity and tannic structure. Until 2014, we never considered it as a varietal bottling. The growing conditions in 2014 were ideal for ripening Mourvédre to perfection, so we seized the opportunity to make a small lot as a varietal wine. This wine has a nose of rose petals and a core of soft red fruit. The tannins are balanced and the finish is long. We don’t expect to make a varietal Mourvédre every year but we hope it’s not too long before we get to do it again.
