As a direct descendent from the Spanish Romantic Era, Riffelhof’s Mourvèdre is a medium-bodied and rustic wine that is sensuously rich in personality while intriguing with its crimson, velvety depth. Inhale an explosion of dark fruit, flowers like violet and herbaceous aromas of black pepper and thyme.
Only 1000 acres of Mourvèdre vines exist in the USA and Riffelhof Vineyards is at the forefront of the growing movement.
Taste Mourvèdre and it will beg for rich foods like Basque short ribs and nicoise olives, Spanish lamb with Alioli sauce, and braised rabbit with garlic.
