Clayhouse 2017 Mourvèdre Paso Robles
This full-bodied, meticulously crafted Mourvèdre was made with the finest techniques from Paso Robles. The grapes, some of them whole cluster, were hand sorted and destemmed into one-ton bins before a three-day cold soak and inoculation with various yeast strains. Fermentation saw hand punch-downs and pressing just before dryness, after which the wine was inoculated for malolactic fermentation before going to barrels to finish, with ageing on the lees for six to eight months before blending.
Mr. Wonderful's Notes
Upfront aromas are meaty and dense, with black fruit alongside leather, smoke, and star anise. Dark and brooding with a round mouthfeel, this wine has a long, lingering, ripe finish.Taste
