Birichino Mr. Natural, Old Vine Mourvedre No.3, Mourvedre
Mourvedre, Lime Kiln Valley, Central Coast, California, 2019 (750 ml)
Unique in place and practice. Mourvedre is a favorite grape of mine and this is as “natural” as it gets without any additions (think extra sulfites here), fining/filtration. It comes from Limekiln Valley, an AVA you’ve probably never heard of (east of Monterey in San Benito Country). The flavors are dark but fresh and easily quaffable.
