Mourvèdre, Monastrell, Mataro…
At the beginning of 2010, as a sort of New Year’s Resolution, I decided to declare it The Year of Mourvedre. To that end, I started Mourvèdre Mondays, where I post a review of a Mourvèdre-based wine every Monday. I didn’t quite keep up with the once a week pace throughout the year, but the idea has morphed into a more on-going focus. Thus were born the #MourvèdreMonday and #TeamMourvèdre hashtags to highlight content of interest to fellow Mourvèd-heads.
Below are links to my posts in the series to date. Check the hashtags on Twitter every now and then to see others joining the cause.
If you have recommendations for bottles I should include, let me know. (Wineries: if you’d like to see your wine included in the series, see the sample policy.)
