2015 Mourvèdre

2015 Mourvèdre 

This wine commands attention.  Gushing and awe inspiring.  Broody with crimson floral flavours, it captures the signature of our house in it's mulled herb and fruit notes.  A slice of rocky road without the sweetness.  An assortment of warm roasted nuts in the dead of winter.

It is understood that Mourvèdre originates from the coastal city of Mataro in Catalonia. It’s appropriate then that Mourvèdre shines in our warm windswept Vale where the nuance of colours and the rhythm of the landscape are reminiscent of the Iberian peninsula. The vineyard for this variety of intrigue sits in an idyllic position; a North facing slope near Sellicks Hill where the consistent maritime breezes of St. Vincent’s Gulf cool and ventilate the bunches.

Mourvèdre has long been relegated across the world as a blending component. Our Mourvèdre now in its sixth vintage standing rightfully confident among the Samuel’s Gorge original trio owning its place within our core range for its spice, finesse and natural rusticity.

Wine Profile
Ratings
Mataro is one of the hero grape varieties of McLaren Vale. 90 Points. Gary Walsh - THE WINEFROBT. It’s a nice wine, with the honey and herb of the grape variety, along with red fruits, new leather and earth. Medium to full bodied, perhaps a little diffuse and sweet, but tasty all the same, and the herb and olive aftertaste is very appealing.
