2018 Mourvèdre, Desert Willow Vineyards
Mourvèdre, also known as Monastrell in its native Spain, and Mataro in Australia, thrives in the Rhone Valley of France where it is often blended with Grenache and Syrah. Our 2018 Mourvèdre from Desert Willow Vineyards in the Texas High Plains AVA ages in oak to produce a wine that is firm, yet medium-bodied, complementing a wide range of foods. It benefits from decanting, gaining a full silky ripeness. Look for top notes of autumn leaves, dried strawberries, and black pepper, with cinnamon, blackberry, and graphite on the palate.
