Mourvedre originated in Spain and is a thick skinned, hot climate grape that results in wines with mouth drying tannins and deep, dark colors. Mourvedre’s herb and spice flavors are typically much more pronounced than its fruit flavors. These characteristics typically result in Mourvedre’s use as a blending grape designed to add color and body to red wine blends.
