Percheron Shiraz Mourvèdre 2016
Hailing from the Western Cape in South Africa, this is made by our old friends Boutinot, 65% Shiraz and 10% Viognier are co-fermented, just as they do in Côte Rôtie in the Northern Rhône, adding perfume and complexity. The remaining 25% Mourvèdre is added later. The grapes are sourced from growers in Swartland in the Cape area.
A bright, sandy nose that can only be Swartland in origin suggests summer pudding, cloves and crushed raspberries. There is rich, dark fruit on the palate with chocolate and savoury notes. Everyone will love this soft, red crowdpleaser!
