TASTING NOTES
Our Mourvedre is one of our most sought after wines from the Hope Family Estate.  This small production wine has a deep ruby core and garnet rim.  Aromas of dried cranberry and blueberry blend with herbal notes of sage, clove and green tea. On the palate, a slight splash of fresh blueberry quickly evolves to more meaty rich full bodied flavors of smoke, stewed black fruit and hints of coco.  The bold firm tannins are balanced by acidity that complete this wine beautifully.

Vineyard Notes
VINEYARD NOTES The 2017 Austin Hope Mourvedre was grown on the Hope Family Estate Vineyards, just 20 miles from the Pacific in the Templeton Gap district of Paso Robles.The site’s rocky soils of clay and limestone make it ideal for the Rhone varieties to which it is planted –Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Roussanne
Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKING NOTES Clone 369 (Spain via France) Mourvedre grapes were handpicked and fermented in 5 ton open top tanks. After daily pump-overs (for color and tannin extraction) for 10 days, the tanks were tasted and analyzed for their tannin and structure to determine the length of extended maceration. The wines were held on their skins for an additional 30 to 60 days before they were barreled down into 77% new and 23% once used French oak barrels where they aged for 21 months. The Mourvedre was racked once during aging and a second time to create the final blend just prior to bottling in August 2019.
