Cline Cellars Ancient Vines Mourvedre

[11 items are in stock]

This exotic varietal, familiar in France, Spain and Australia, once became extremely rare in California. Our Oakley vineyards produce small harvests of intense, remarkable grapes. Flavour of dark plum and chocolate lead to a hint of oak and a smooth finish. This ancient vines mourvedre was aged for 8 months in 30% new American oak. It ages very well, but is ready to enjoy right now.

This scrumptious and unusually delightful wine goes exceptionally well with grilled lamb or pork, sautéed asparagus and curried deviled eggs. Also fab with rack of lamb, duck confit are steak tartare.

Cline Cellars is a family-owned vineyard and winery with 460 hectares under vine in Contra Costa County and Sonoma County, California. Established in 1982 by Fred Cline, a descendant of Italian US settlers, he originally founded the winery in Oakley, Contra Costa County, cultivating Rhone varieties and Zinfandel on vines dating back to 1906. In the 1990s, the family moved their winemaking operation to a 350 acre ranch in Carneros Valley, adopting sustainable farming in 2000, and building the largest solar panelled winery in California. Whist others in California were focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in the ‘80s, Fred Cline saw the potential of Rhone varieties and Zinfandel in his vineyards.
