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.
