Mourvedre

Mourvedre, is a variety of red wine grape grown around the world. In Portugal and the New World it is known as Mataró. In Spain, it is known as Monastrell. It produces tannic wines that can be high in alcohol, and is most successful in Rhone-style blends. It has a particular affinity for Grenache, softening it and giving it structure. Its taste varies greatly according to area, but often has a wild, gamey or earthy flavour, with soft red fruit flavours.
