Originally from Spain (known as Monastrell or Mataro), the grape was brought to
France where it became known as Mourvèdre and used in the complex red blends
of the Southern Rhône and Bandol. The Mourvèdre grape loves our vineyard’s
warm, sunny afternoons, cool evenings and sandy soils, producing a wine with
complex layers and the ability to age gracefully.
Our 2014 Mourvèdre has a mixture of blue and black fruits, pepper and smoked
meat aromas and flavors. As it ages in the bottle subtle gamey layers will begin
develop, adding further complexity to the wine.
