Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Mourvèdre is fairly rare in South Africa, only a handful are bottled as single varietals. This temperamental grape thrives on the Koopmanskraal farm in Agter-Paarl. The un-irrigated, ten-year-old block produces intensely concentrated, very small bunches with pea-sized berries. The soils impart soft spice and minerality that makes this wine so exciting and unique. A complex, layered wine; the nose of berry fruit is complemented by fynbos and soft spice aromas, while the palate layers flavours of cloves, leathery spice and red fruit. The elegant finish is dry and savoury. Ideal with hearty country food, beef loin and roast red meat dishes.
