NATURAL SWEET MOURVÈDRE

2014

Many years ago, one of my importers in London asked that I make him a sweet wine that he could pair with the cheese board at his restaurant.

 

For years I thought he was joking, until his regular insistence demanded action on my part. So I found a block of Mourvèdre in the Swartland, and let the sun go to work. The result is our naturally sweet Mourvèdre. It is rich and full-bodied, but with a strong line of acidity to keep the wine balanced and ensure that it can be enjoyed at any time.

 

This wine is a great alternative to Port and fortified wines, and also pairs beautifully with dessert.
