Limited Release Mourvedre 2015, Swartland Winery

Tasting Note

This wine with its intense dark colour, has an enticing nose of mocha and chocolate with dark berry flavours, which follow through onto the palate and are complemented by spicy undertones. A soft mouthfeel that lingers on the palate.

Producer Note

Big open skies, arid deserts, the vast flowing landscape, with its unforgiving climate and rugged bush vines, this is wild country, this is Swartland. The contrast with manicured Constantia and oh-so-cool Stellenbosch could not be greater. But right now, Swartland is the most exciting wine region in South Africa. A new wave of winemakers are making ground-breaking wines from Rhône varietals and it is part of a revolution that has got everybody talking. The Swartland Winery is producing iconic and award winning wines in this fashionable and dynamic region, and have created a unique, distinctive and expressive wine range that has been masterfully blended for the UK palate. 

Vintage

2012 was a good year, with below average yields, but excellent quality fruit due to the good conditions during the harvest period.

Vineyard

The soil types vary from Hutton, Clovelly, Sandy fernwood, and Kroonstad, but Malmesbury Shale dominates, with small patches of granite and Table Mountain sandstone. The gravel sub-structure of the soil promotes good moisture retention, essential in this hot, dry climate.

Serving Suggestion

Pair with rich and creamy pastas or any grilled meat dishes.
