Turkey Flat Mourvédre 2010

Behold! Good gear here - Mataro Mourvédre in a somewhat lighter guise, without sacrificing any of the signature elements of the variety.

Opens with a sandy, earthen character; hints of rain on dry earth, a nutty touch, a little dried grass before dark plum and cherry start to gradually reveal themselves. Furtively lurking behind them, a little spice to top it off - lovely layered aromatics from the off.

Then, to the palate presence: medium-full bodied, yet possessing quite a lightness of touch for what is ostensibly a big lad. Richly spiced, the wine has Mataro's depth and length but in a somewhat lighter manner. Juiciness is big factor here, gives it that slurp-ability that has you yearning to come back, and fine tannin to add an extra dimension in the mouth. A winner! 93
