In stock

The aromatics of this wine jump out the glass with sage, cherry spice and fresh almonds. Powdery tannins provide a canvas for the flavours that wash across the medium bodied palate, and bright acidity keeps the wine fresh and vibrant.

Sourced from a trio of vineyards. The first is in Blewitt Springs, the climatically coolest part of the Vale. The second vineyard is a couple of kilometres south of Willunga town. The third vineyard is in the Sellicks foothills further South. All three Mataro batches received different treatment in the winery. The Blewitt Springs Mataro was 50% fermented as whole clusters of grapes. The Willunga ferment was cold soaked for 4 days prior to ferment to allow non-primary ferment extraction of colour and tannin. The Sellicks portion was kept on skins post ferment for 3 months. All batches were matured in neutral French oak before blending and bottling in July 2018.Unfined & unfiltered. (14.4%ABV)

    Lovely savoury tones… a really well structured wine. Fruit, earth and meaty tones all working brilliantly as one.
