Syrahmi Mourvedre 2012


I instinctively started to type "shiraz" as I entered the label "Heathcote" for this wine.  Of course, this is a mourvedre.  The front and back labels play on the three names for the grape - mourvedre, mataro (South Australia) and monastrell (Spain), and settles on the former.  The wine itself is a medium intensity ruby in colour and has aromatics that are gamey, with fresh notes reminding of a bouquet garnis and red plums.  The palate reveals a quite an elegant expression of mourvedre, with red plums, gamey almost venison like notes and a medium length finish.  This is a very balanced wine that disappeared quickly.

Rating: Good, Abv: 13.5%, Price: $36, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://syrahmi.com.au, Tasted: 2014
