Wallula Vineyard Mourvèdre

Wallula Vineyard Block 81 Mourvèdre was planted in 1998 on a extremely steep slope on a rocky outcropping above the Columbia River. The view from this location is unrivaled and the wine is outstanding!

Tasting notes

The Mourvèdre has a dark red hue with nice clarity. The aromas consist of flint, wet rocks, rainier cherry, pepper and a hint of sagebrush.  A first taste of the wine reveals a soft and plush entry into the mouth with mid pallet flavors of cherry, tar, and both white and black pepper. The Wallula Vineyard Mourvèdre has thick fine grain tannins which build towards a long finish. Enjoy through 2026.

Production notes

2014 was a remarkable vintage. It was the second warmest vintage in Washington State history, very prolic in tons of grapes per acre harvested, and one of the highest quality vintages ever.  The Wallula Vineyard Mourvèdre grapes were hand harvested on October 9th.  The grapes were hand sorted and destemmed, and fermented by yeasts native to Wallula Vineyard.  The fermentation was punched down three times daily until pressing.  Only the free run wine was retained to create this amazing single vineyard Mourvèdre.  The Mourvèdre was aged in used French oak barrels (225 liters) and was barrel stirred three times, and aged sur lie prior to bottling on February 19, 2016.
