Mourvèdre…Mataro….Monastrell…Dog Strangler….so many names for one grape. Best seek out Stuart Robinson’s “Project Mataro” for arguably the single most Mourvèdre/Mataro tasting notes in one spot.
Bremerton, Special Release, Mourvèdre, Langhorne Creek 2014
Alluring nose: Ripe plum skin, fresh earth, rose petal, mocha and rough hewn wood. Tight and dark fruit flavours before plenty of medium density tannins that invade most of the corners of the mouth. The fall away to redolent spice is a highlight. Definitely a wine to be served with heavier dishes and will cellar easily until 2027
