The old name for Mourvèdre was ‘The Dog Strangler’, for its ferocious tannins. This wine is 100% Mourvèdre from the Coume del Mas vineyard. The very best grapes were crushed into an open new oak barrel and worked heavily during a six week maceration to give a big, bold and structured wine that was subsequently aged in new oak casks for 14 months. Thankfully the tannins have been tamed!
