Naudé Wines Natural Sweet Mourvedre 2014 (500ml)
Naudé Naturally Sweet Mourvèdre is rich and full-bodied, but with a strong line of acidity to keep the wine balanced and ensure that it can be enjoyed at any time.
This wine will last for many years to come. Naturally, it will change through the years with the sweetness never fading and possibly increasing with time.
The 2014 harvest had the earliest start in decades. A warm, dry and windy summer kept vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by approximately two weeks. The dry weather resulted in the healthiest seasons in years. This led to good grape analyses which formed the foundation for high quality wine.
The grapes on these vines are storied complex and unique. Each year they represent something different – whatever nature allows them – and with any luck they don’t get in the way.
Give this Chardonnay from South Africa a go!
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
- 94 Pts
Grapes are picked at different times and expertly blended to present a lush, opulent, almost Amarone-like wine that is at once sweet but also thoroughly mouthwatering and refreshing. Originally created to pair with all manner of cheese and dessert courses. Seductive, hedonistic and so delicious!
