2020 Limited Release Mourvedre, Swartland Winery

Western Cape, South AfricaVintage: 2020

Small berries big taste! The Swartland wine region of the Western Cape encompasses a uniquely diverse topographic area, with a myriad of microclimates, soils and sites which give rise to wines of full flavour and complexity.  Swartland Winery produces premium single varietal wines from the characterful bush vines grown in the heart of the Swartland, yielding wines of distinctive depth and concentration.

This 2020 Limited Release Mouvedre has benefited from a few years in bottle to give an intensely coloured wine with a perfumed nose of mocha, chocolate and dark berry flavours, which follow through onto the palate.  Complemented by spicy undertones and soft mouthfeel that lingers on the palate, this is an excellent interpretation of the classic Rhone grape and a bargain to boot!

Interesting Fact: The Swartland name originates from a description of the indigenous “renosterbos” or rhino bush, which appears to turn black, (“Swart” in Afrikaans), during the summer months.

Description

Big open skies, arid deserts, the vast flowing landscape, with its unforgiving climate and rugged bush vines, this is wild country, this is Swartland. The contrast with manicured Constantia and oh-so-cool Stellenbosch couldn’t be greater. But right now, Swartland is the most exciting wine region in South Africa. A new wave of winemakers are making ground-breaking wines from Rhône varietals and it is part of a revolution that has got everybody talking. The Swartland Winery is producing iconic and award-winning wines in this fashionable and dynamic region, so naturally, we are delighted to offer their wines.

Swartland Winery is situated about 70km north of Cape Town and 3km outside the town of Malmesbury on the road to Paarl.  In the heart of the Swartland the winery harvests its grapes from wine farms spread out on the hills around Malmesbury.  The vineyards benefit from the constant cool breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean, effectively sustaining the many microclimates, while the proximity to mountain ranges adds its own dimension to the physical characteristics of the grape berry.
