We call Mourvèdre the “Sophisticate” because of the elegance it adds to blends.
- Small, thick-skin berries
- Tannic wines high in alcohol
- Major grape of Bandol in Provence
- Southern France and South Australia – adds flesh to GSM blends
- Widely used to create rosé
- Monastrell in Spain, Mataro in Australia
Mourvèdre does well in hot climates and should benefit from global warming
