2017 Estate Mourvèdre
Typically used to inject a juciy acidity into our Legend blend, the 2017 Mourvèdre is a stand-out in its own right. Beautiful notes of cassis, rosemary, sage, crushed violets and black cheeries. This vintage expresses a rich, polished mouthfeel and a refined tannin structure. A wine that pairs equally with pepperoni pizza and roasted leg of lamb.
The fruit was hand-harvested at night, hand-sorted and fermented in an open top tank. 6 days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, average 20 days on skins and gently basket pressed. Gravity fed to French oak barrels (75% new). Aged 19 months, then bottled unfiltered. 3 Barrels Produced
