Tellurian Wines Mourvedre 2011

A sexy little piece of work. Not a gut busting or big and juicy Mourvedre, just a wine with drinkability to caress your insides.

The wine developed nicely over a few days. A whiff of Allen's raspberry lollies sucked me in day one. This freshness shifted to dried leaf litter, earthiness, cured meat and even a hint of eucalypt on day three.

Plenty of white pepper in the mouth and the fifteen months in French oak has done its thing well. I found the whole savoury aspect quite attractive. A forever length which just keeps hanging on and super smooth to finish. Nice!

Have with slow roasted lamb and cellar for up to eight years.

For $34, it is certainly worth a look. Check the website for availability.
