Tasting notes

All Mourvèdre and with a deep purple color, this is the first natural, sans soufre red wine Gård has ever made. The wine begins with a ripe, sexy nose of blueberries, plums, violets, and bacon fat, with hints of black pepper, cigar box, and dried herbs. Swirling brings tart black fruits, black currant, and a beautiful floral lift. The palate is medium-bodied, viscous but fresh, with incredible intensity, bright acidity, and insane length. The more you swirl, the riper the wine gets, with notes of black cherry, blackberry compote, and hints of ground coffee. Remarkably well structured, the wine shows firm tannins and an outstanding, mineral finish. A hedonistic new wine that will give your senses both a challenge and a treat. Beautiful now, enjoy for the next 6 years.

Production notes
About Sans Soufre
Sans Soufre, a French abbreviation for “no sulfur dioxide added,” is synonymous with natural wine. Our Sans Soufre wines undergo a natural fermentation without added yeast or sulfur. A secondary malolactic fermentation softens the wine with a creamy texture. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

93pts Critic’s Choice - Northwest Wine Report/ Sean Sullivan 
Fruit for this wine comes from Thunderstone Vineyard. The aromas are very primary, with notes of black currant, whole cranberry, black pepper, and dark plum. The flavors are full-bodied, palate-coating, and achingly pure. Vibrant acidity keeps it all in focus and provides tension. It’s absolutely outstanding. I haven’t had another Mourvèdre in the state like it. It’s the purity that separates it far from the pack. 12.4 % alcohol. TCA-free micro-agglomerated cork. 65 cases produced.

Gård Vintners is 100% estate grown sustainably at Lawrence Vineyards, featuring eight distinct vineyard sites in the Royal Slope AVA. With elevations that range 930 feet to 1,675 feet and primarily a south-facing slope, Lawrence Vineyards provides a great framework for grape production, while the diversity of each of the locations delivers a high level of complexity to Gård wines. We also farm vineyards on the Wahluke Slope and Conner Lee in the Columbia Valley. Lawrence Vineyards is certified sustainable by Vinewise.org.

Winemaker & Viticulturist
A Chilean with Greek roots, Matías was a Marine officer and Naval Engineer in Chile for more than seven years when he realized that it was time to change the course of his career: In 2005, he started studying Agricultural Engineering at the University of Chile, where he graduated with distinction and a major in Viticulture and Enology. He worked in Chile for a few years and in 2011 he decided to start traveling the world on a quest to learn new wine-making techniques. After several harvests in Oceania, Europe and Africa, he settled down in France, to do his post degrees at the Universities of Bordeaux and Montpellier. He also performed for two years as a Maître de Chai for one of the oldest and most reputable wineries in Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie.
After years of traveling and over 15 harvests, he came to the United States and joined Gård Vintners/Lawrence Vineyards as a Production Winemaker and Viticulturist, and is currently head winemaker for Gård Vintners, Desert Wind Winery, Valo Cellars, and his own label, Massalto. In his spare time he likes to jump out of planes and is a Judo Black Belt.
