Golden Grove Vintage Grand Reserve Mourvedre 2012

This is a big wine which could go either way. Some may be wooed by its boldness whilst others may not see the appeal. I thought it was a good wine but it didn't blow my socks off. And really, I didn't think it stacked up to the standard of the others in the Grand Vintage Reserve range.

It's a bit stinky; boot polish like. Add to that some sour and baked cherries, spices, and cedary oak. The fruit coats the mouth well but just doesn't have that X factor I was hoping for, though some of those classic Mourvedre traits are present. If anything it needs time to see its best where it will soften and show it's true form.

Good+
