Mourvèdre, internationally recognized as Mataro in Australia and Monastrell in Spain, is a key player in the Australian wine scene, especially favoured in regions like Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale for its contribution to the complexity and structure of blends. Known for its full-bodied, tannic profile enriched with dark fruit and spice nuances, Mourvèdre reflects the intense character of Australia's terroir.

Its adaptability shines in GSM (Grenache Shiraz Mataro) blends, enhancing the wine with depth and spicy notes, while also standing out in varietal wines. These single-varietal expressions highlight Mourvèdre's robustness and its compatibility with the warm Australian climate, emphasizing its distinct flavors and substantial tannins.
