THE VINEYARD AND SOIL
The Quando Mourvedre Red hails from the same single vineyard as Rosé. The Vineyard was planted on a slope of Red Karoo Clay in 2001 and three wired Perold trained.

WINE MAKING
The grapes for this Mourvedre were picked two weeks after the grapes for the Rosé. Even more fully ripe, tasting of cherries and sweet fruits. The grapes were harvested by hand and cooled down in little lug boxes to 8 degrees Centigrade. After destemming the grapes, the mash received 5 days’ cold maceration. Because of the cold temperature, yeast was added to start the fermentation process. After fermentation it was matured in third and fourth filled barrels.

TASTING NOTES
Delicate Blackberry and plum flavours on the nose, follow through with spicy stewed fruit flavours on the pallet with elegant velvety tannins.
