Mourvedre Wine Information

Mourvedre is a red grape variety originally planted in France and is best known as being a component of Chatueaneuf-du-Pape. Recently several other countries have done small plantings of Mourvedre but in general the grape is not widely grown.

In Spain, the grape is known as Monastrell, and there are plantings up to 100 years old available there.

Mourvedre has flavors of red fruit and earth. Often you can find plummy, blackberry, leathery, and blueberry flavors.
