Additional Information on Carchelo 'C' Carchelo 2014

Winery: Carchelo

Varietal: Mourvedre

The Mourvèdre grape varietal has been grown in Europe for well over two thousand years, and is believed to have been brought to Spain by ancient Phoenician tradesman. Since those ancient times, it has been comfortably growing in several regions of France, and in recent years, has become a key New World grape varietal. It is commonly blended with Grenache and Syrah varietals, and lends an intensely fruity flavor to such blends. Mourvèdre is not the easiest grape varietal to cultivate, and requires plenty of sunshine coupled with well irrigated, moist soils. However, it is also quite vulnerable to mildew, and as such presents plenty of challenges to vintners. The grape itself holds some fascinating flavors, often described as gamey or meaty, and with plenty of deep and complex bramble fruit and earthy notes.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
