Mourvèdre 2019 - Black Market Deal #43025
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Welcome to a little slice of vine heaven. A vineyard steeped in history, so much so that it will likely gain UNESCO world heritage status. From the heart of the Barossa Valley, these ancient soils and seemingly prehistoric bush vines are a marvel to behold; the wine? Even more so. And, sure, we may be grape nerds here at the ‘fo, but this particular ponderer has us wearing monocles and sipping in our mahogany-shelved library of encyclopaedias studying one word: mourvèdre. The power here is truly incomparable. Deep, concentrated, brooding and wondrous, from black cherry to flickers of boysenberry, dried bay leaf and mineral. Concentrated, powerful and classically mourvèdre; this has the Bandol fans among us coming back for more. Full of finesse and a beauty of a beast.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
