Swartland Winery Limited Release Mourvedre 2020
The Swartland Winery is doing something totally new. In a world where most wines are starting to taste exactly the same, this winery is looking to change the game. And it makes sense; Swartland in nothing like most of South Africa's—and the world's—wine producing regions. It is rugged, wild, hot. This winery has managed to capture the essence of their region, without losing the sophistication that discerning buyers have come to expect. Truly unique and just now being given the recognition that it deserves, these wines have been chosen specifically for our buyers, with their preferences and penchant for adventure in mind.
For this vineyard, environmental sustainability is just as important as balance of flavors. They select a variety of different wine grapes, raised with as little intervention as possible and amongst cover crops for nutrition, moisture, and protection, to create an expertly blended flavor. Averaging a yield of six tonnes of fruit per hectare, the grapes grown in these vineyards are unsurpassed in quality and reflect the vivacity of their environment.
This wine with its intense dark colour, has an enticing nose of mocha and chocolate with dark berry flavours, which follow through onto the palate and are complemented by spicy undertones. A soft mouthfeel that lingers on the palate.
This full, rich wine with bright fruit that accompanies rich and creamy pastas or grilled meat dishes.
