The Rescue Paradox

Seeing California’s Future Through Mourvedre-Tinted Lenses

“Mourvedre has been in California since the 1800s, and you’ll still find a vine or two scattered among the zinfandel in the state’s pre-Prohibition plantings – back then, they called it mataro.[…] Still, compared to syrah and grenache, mourvedre is the late bloomer of the American Rhone movement; most Californians working with mourvedre tended to de-emphasize it, planting just enough to earn the “M” in the GSM blend.

On the other hand, to its two most ardent Californian devotees, mourvedre seems almost miraculous – a grape poised to help California weather the coming ordeal of climate change, and make some delicious wines in the process, particularly in one of California’s long-ignored but vast terroirs: the volcanic slopes of the sierra Foothills.” by Luke Sykora
