Terra Felix E'vette's Block Mourvèdre 2008


I reviewed the 2006 version of this about a year or so ago, and whilst this is the better wine, that earlier version punches heavier in the QPR stakes. Unsure as to the price of this, $49.50 is stated on the website - if true that's a fair hike from the $15 of the 2006.

To the wine in question: generous polished plum brandy/ kirsch aromatics, a touch of licorice. This all flows through to the palate, it's smooth and the technique of micro-oxygenation has rendered it very approachable, if at the expense of Mataro's trademark depth.  

There's a bit of citrus freshness and zippy acidity about and this contribute to a moderate length with persistence of brambly/ blackcurrant flavour. 89 - Good
