Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvèdre '18
Dirty & Rowdy has become a wine that is sought out by wine geeks across the globe, easily selling out the winery’s production every year. But the wine that’s produced isn’t another cult Napa Cabernet or an in-demand Pinot Noir. Instead the wines Hardy Wallace is making utilize grapes that are virtually unknown to most wine consumers – Mourvedre is used for the brand’s red and Semillon for their white. Hardy is now making what many believe to be the purest examples of Mourvèdre in California. Grapes are sourced from a handful of small growers who focus on organic viticulture. Wines are vinified naturally, all fruit is picked by hand, only natural yeasts are used in the cellar and no sulfur is used at bottling.
