2019 Twinkle Mourvèdre
Our quintessential chillable red is a lighter than typical style of spicy character Mourvèdre grown in granite at 2600 feet.
We can’t get enough of our chillable reds! Twinkle made its debut in 2015, after a particularly light bodied Mourvèdre inspired its creation. 2019 is just as nervy and lively as the past three vintages. This wine has become a must-have by the pool and — as many of Tracey’s North Carolina friends like to say — the go-to “porch pounder”.
A pretty nose of crushed raspberry and strawberry laced with a light dusty fringe. This is a racy and light bodied red wine that leads with flavor profiles matching its aromatics: strawberries, raspberries, a touch of orange zest and pomegranate. Serve chilled, preferably on a porch on a warm Summer day.
