"One vineyard is 140 years old, the other two are 70 years old. It’s just above medium-bodied, deep and succulent, carries the essential character of Mataro so well. Textbook. So good." 95pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
This has the classic varietal aromas of Chinese-5-spice, liquorice and dark berry fruits. The palate is at once spicy, with lively defining tannins due to being picked at exactly the right time.
"One vineyard is 140 years old, the other two are 70 years old. Tim knows a thing or two about Mataro. Black fruit, liquorice, a little orange peel and spice, roast beef, some floral and dried herb perfume. It’s just above medium-bodied, deep and succulent, carries the essential character of Mataro so well, even and balanced acidity, some roasted nuts and a perfumed/fresh/savoury finish of excellent length. Textbook. So good." 95pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
