VINTAGE 2020

We selectively picked from our 0.8 ha single vineyard, separating low yielding vines to go into this wine. The grapes were de-stemmed and fermented in a single small fermenter and pressed once the sugar had been depleted. We wanted the fruit of the grape to shine so maturation was in older oak to gain complexity but not detract from the primary fruit. Mourvèdre is grown widely in southern France and in Spain (where it is known as Monastrel). Along with Grenache it is typically one of the last grape varieties to ripen in our McLaren Vale vineyard.
