Bec Hardy Mourvèdre 2021


Always interesting it see how this variety stands up in a solo act. We all know it works very well as a small component in blends, but it is not always quite so successful when left to its own devices. This comes from a block where the team has sourced fruit for their GSM for almost a decade, but they were so impressed with the quality from this vintage that it was decided to bottle it as a varietal. It has been a success. Bruised plum in colour, we have notes of aniseed, plums, coffee beans and black jelly beans. Spices and a hint of vanilla round things out. There is grip, length and intensity supported by grippy tannins and good acidity – this is no shrinking violet. You can drink it now, but it will surely be better in two to three years and then drink well for another three to four, or more.
