Tasting Notes
Mourvèdre (earthy) with a splash of Grenache (fruity) here and a dash of Shiraz (spicy) there was blended to create this incredible wine. The overriding requirement being that the blend of the “three halves” has to be greater than the sum of the parts..
Only Available Directly from the Farm: Limited Quantities in Stock.
