Dirty & Rowdy Enz Vineyard Mourvedre


Grape: Mourvedre

Vineyard: 100-year-old, dry-farmed, organic, own-rooted Mourvèdre on decomposed limestone and granite soils in Lime Kiln Valley AVA, San Benito County. 1200ft Elevation

Winemaking: 100% whole cluster, spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral barrels. Like the 2017 Unfamiliar wines, the winery did have to filter this wine for volatile acidity. It received a more gentle / shorter filtration than the Unfamiliar Red.

Personality: Licorice, orange peel, raspberry, spices with a Mediterranean hint. Distinctive tannic structure, best after some time spent in the carafe.
