Varietal: Mourvedre

The Mourvèdre grape varietal is today grown all over the Old and New World, and is thought to have originally been brought to Spain by ancient Phoenicians over two thousand years ago. They are not the simplest of varietals to cultivate, and often wineries struggle with Mourvèdre, as they require both heat and moisture, and as such need to grow in well irrigated vineyards in hot regions. However, the resulting wines made from Mourvèdre grapes are usually fascinating and delicious, carrying interesting flavors that are often described as darkly meaty, with plenty of blackberry and other dark berry notes. The wines are often quite tannic and high in alcohol and acid, and as such, it is very common for Mourvèdre to be blended with Grenach and Syrah varietals in order to make superbly balanced wines.

Region: Provence

Provence is a very special wine region, located in the south of France where the Mediterranean sea meets the beautiful green and rolling landscapes of the mainland. For centuries, the region has been deeply associated with its unique cuisine and characterful wines, which stretch back through history an impressive amount of time. Indeed, Provence can claim to be one of the original French wine regions from the classical age, and its wine culture has been influenced and inspired by a stunning list of different peoples and cultures, who have settled in the stunning green valleys of the region over three thousand years. Today, Provence is most famous for its stunning rosé wines, which have been the favorites of European aristocracy for centuries. However, white and red wines are also made in Provence, and are equally fine and just as capable of expressing this most wonderful of French wine regions.
