The Twenty Eight Road Mourvedre
DetailsThe aromas are lifted an expressive with notes of dried herbs, iodine and game more dominant than the soft red fruits. The palate is elegant and balanced. The lovely mid palate dark cherry fruit works harmoniously in support of the savoury herb and licorice notes. The acidity is lively and while there are sufficient tannins, the structure remains fine and frames the wine exceptionally well, with a long mineral finish. It’s providing immense pleasure as a young wine, but is well poised for a long life in the cellar, up to 15 years. The wine is not filtered or fined prior to bottling which may result in harmless deposits in the wine. Decanting prior to serving is recommended.
