Mourvèdres

McCauley Estate Vineyards Wine

If you love Cabernet Sauvignon then you will enjoy Mourvèdres’ full bodied explosion of dark fruit flavors. Mourvèdre (aka Monastrell) is a rustic wine that originated in Spain. Rumor has it that the seafaring Phoenicians brought it over as early as 500 B.C. Seemingly obscure, Mourvèdre is actually used quite often as a blending grape in popular wines such as Châteauneuf du Pape. It’s one of the major grapes of the Rhône along with Grenache and Syrah.
