Spice Route Mourvedre

Mourvedre

These grapes are harvested from an unirrigated vineyard in the Swartland. These bushvines (untrellised) were planted in 2001 on predominantly deap Oakleaf and Koffieklip soils. Grapes were harvested by hand at 26 degrees balling. They were destalked and lightly crushed into 5 ton open concrete fermenters. Fermentation lasted seven days, after which the wine was pressed off the skins and transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation. Once this was completed the wine was racked off its lees lightly sulphured and sent to a combination of American and French oak barrels (10% new) for 14 months of maturation. Spice Route Mourvèdre is produced in a full flavoured, yet medium bodied style. This variety works well with the terroir of the Swartland and the wine shows lovely white pepper spice and juicy fruit.
