This is our first varietal Mourvèdre. Generally, the majority of our Mourvèdre is allocated to our GSM blend, but with more growers coming online in the High Plains, we’ve been able to grow this part of our program. It’s a variety you may see lots of in Texas, and for us, this is because it is such a versatile grape that grows very well and is easy to manage.
Portions of this wine were fermented in bin and semicarbonic in that not all of the grapes were crushed prior to fermentation. This technique will give off more fruit esters and complexity through the fermentation. Aging was in a combination of new and neutral American oak barrels for 12 months before blending and bottling.
