The Moocher

Mourvèdre 2021

Lazing around on the vine it’s almost always the last to harvest; no variety mooches more than our Mataro. Luckily this loafer is no slouch in flavour and so always worth the wait.

Vegan friendly

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I have never tried a Mourvedre before but honestly, I was very impressed! Delicious and I will be buying another bottle or dozen very soon - Sammy

Winemaker's Notes

The rows of the Church vineyard are hemmed in by a creek at one end and an enormous old gum at the other. Many years this can mean one end is dipping its toes in the water while the other is getting fairly thirsty. I think the range of flavours we see rolling about this wine is, at least in part, due to this variation along each row. Rich fruit but still crisp and with tremendous structure.

Bouquet & Palate

A big soft punch of plums, honey-bacon, and a whole field of multiple florals. India ink, rosemary, coal, and raspberry. Soft, lip smacking, smoochy palate. Pulpy fresh, and bright. Lolls like caramel; lingering. Moocher speed.

Food Match

Pan fried maple and apple pork chops, or a roast beetroot and butternut pumpkin salad with tahini.
