The 5OS Project 2016 Mataro
Aromatic. Herbs and savoury tones first with dried meat and a superb array of berry fruit following. Well judged. Tannins are firm but forgiving. A mixed punnet of cherry, cranberry, blackberry with a cinnamon stick on top. Savoury at the back palate offset by the fruit sweetness. Juicy and delicious.
100% Mataro from the Brini Vineyard in McLaren Vale. Two-a-day pump overs until fermented dry, before the wine spent 15 months in 2nd and 3rd use French Hogsheads.
Voted top 100 in Adelaide's Hot 100 Wines 2017
