I reviewed this wine about a year ago and tasted it again in late July at cellar door with Turkey Flat owner Christie Schulz. The conversation turned to the tongue-twisting varietal name. When visitors struggle with 'mourvèdre', Schulz turns discomfort to a smile with "move-over-dear". It seems English customers prefer 'mourvèdre', while in the Barossa it's more widely known as 'mataro' (though one producer opts for the Spanish 'monastrell'). Schulz says the vines produce very small, thick-skinned berries. These make a unique red, in this instance with blackberry-like fruit, with a dusting of spice and loads of fine, grippy tannins from those thick skins.
