Mourvèdre is planted in two distinct locations throughout Anna’s Vineyard. The diverse locations give the winemaker different nuances that can aid in the crafting of a well-balanced wine. The fruit was picked at night, de-stemmed and quickly followed by optical sorting and foot treading. Fermentation proceeded in concrete tanks with indigenous yeast cultures. The wine matured in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels and puncheons.
"the 2017 Mourvèdre Signature Anna's Estate Vineyard has a terrific bouquet of bloody red and black fruits, ground pepper, lavender, and spring flowers. Exotic, elegant, incredibly polished, yet with good acidity, it's another brilliant wine from this great winemaker that readers should snatch up."
