Fruit Sourcing - Rockgarden Mourvedre
Mourvedre has always been one of my favorite grapes. Nice dark color, lovely black pepper nose, and soft silky tannins to round out the palate. When I found a ton of Mourvedre down in The Rocks, I knew I had to have it. Great Mourvedre profile with a touch of earthiness from The Rocks.
Rockgarden vineyard is unique in that its row are not exactly north-south orientation. They are at a slight angle to capture more afternoon heat, which allows Mourvedre to ripen perfectly at this site.
