Mourvèdre 2020

McLaren Vale

VINTAGE: The start of the 2020 growing season was dry with warmer than average temperatures. Heat and wind during flowering led to lower fruit set and subsequently lower yields at harvest. The temperatures became milder from late January, allowing the vines to recover and helping maintain acidity. Although crops were down considerably this vintage, the quality has been fantastic.

STORY: We have been purchasing this block of Mourvèdre for the Pertaringa GSM since 2013, however, this is such a standout wine we have decided to bottle it as a single varietal from this vintage.

NOSE: Juicy dark fruits including blackberry and mulberry jump from the glass with complex notes from time spent in old oak.

PALATE: These dark fruits follow onto the palate along with hints of spice including green peppercorn. The firm tannins, great acidity, and good length make this wine a delicious accompaniment to a meal.

CELLARING: Drink now to 2026
