Mourvedre is a grape variety with a few aliases. It was once known in Australia as Mataro, and you can still find a few wines with that name on the label. In Spain where it is very widely grown it is called Morastell. In Australia we now use the name Mourvedre as it is called in the Rhone region in France.

Most Aussie drinkers probably only know it if the are curious enough to ask what the M stands for in GSM, but it is a fairly common variety. In fact there are about 100 Aussie wineries using it.
