Mourvedre Wine

Also known as Monastrell in Spain and Mataro in Australia and California, the black skinned Mourvedre grape variety likes warm and dry climates. The berries are small and thin skinned which create rich dark coloured wines with strong tannins plus meaty and herbaceous notes. In Spain, Monastrell develops blackberry and black cherry notes, but is still very rich and dark. Australian and Californian wines are even more fruit driven and rich. The weather and ability to ripen the grapes will significantly affect the taste of the wine. In the Southern Rhone and Provence (notably Bandol) you will find Mourvedre blended with Grenache which adds alcohol and vibrancy and Syrah which adds spice. Carignan and Cinsault are also often blended with Mourvedre, not surprisingly as all these grapes grow well in similar conditions. Red meats roasted with lavender, rosemary and thyme are a great match for full-bodied Mourvedre wines as are mushrooms cooked in soy sauce.
