About this wine

Spice Route Mourvèdre 2019 is dense and intense, with opulent aromas of black cherry, raspberry, cardamom and wild herbs. The palate is brimming with juicy black and red fruit flavours, tempered by a subtle savoury edge. It is medium bodied, with ripe tannins and well-integrated oak.

Alcohol: 15% ABV

    string(583) "Small, dark berries turn into deeply-concentrated, tannic and often unforgiving red wines requiring much aging. A native of the Southern Rhône, it offers great potential with vine age and careful handling. Usually combined with other varietals as a blending component, it is most famous for the wines produced in the southern French village of Bandol. When handled in a modern, gentle way it produces accessible, polished styles which are growing in popularity. The Swartland in South Africa’s Western Cape is a hotspot for this variety, where vine age and commerciality converge."
