Mourvèdre is such a charismatic and emphatic variety, which is allowed to explore its full seductive potential in McLaren Vale.
It is a variety that is difficult to stereotype as it exhibits both brooding ambition and an introverted decadence.
This wine displays dense and interwoven layers of allspice, tar and marzipan and treads a fine line between brute power and restrained finesse.
