Wine Review–Hanover Park Mourvedre 2005Posted in : Mourvedre, Red Wine, Wine on by : The Gourmez
Hanover Park Mourvedre 2005
Other words on the label: Yadkin Valley, Alcohol Content 13%
This is another wine from our recent trip to the Yadkin Valley wine region and fortunately, this one lived up to the tasting room sample! We have not been so lucky with some of our other choices from the trip.
It smells like raspberry bottle caps, including the chalkiness of the candy. There’s a strong hot cocoa smell that also rises up.
The wine is mellow. I’d liken it to an orange or apricot that has been roasted, thus heightening the fruit’s richness. There’s a hint of lime as well.
