Spice Route's 2015 Mourvedre is one of Swartland's most exciting wines; a spicy, concentrated, medium-bodied red with nicely tempered oak. The grapes for the 2015 vintage yield from unirrigated bush vines, which were originally planted in 2001 on deep Koffieklip and Oakleaf soils. Mild weather at harvest time ensured that the grapes were picked in optimum conditions following a warm, dry summer.

Aromas of black cherry infused with lovely hints of cardamom and nutmeg. Intense, concentrated fruit on the palate, balanced by a savoury character.
