The nose is dark and ripe, unveiling with time aromas of dark berry fruit, blueberry, kirsch and mince pie spice. The palate is supple and intense with licorice and dark fruit flavours wrapped in savoury spice and framed by fine tannins. Sourced from the Marschall vineyard, an eighty year old organic and dry-grown vineyard, planted on its own rootstocks to clones unknown, in the Vine Vale district. The loose sandy soils reflect sunlight in a similar way to the Rhone’s pebbled vineyards and are well suited to Mataro.

Spicy perfume, blue fruits and almost into blackcurrant, fennel and dried herbs, honey and oranges. Probably popped a few too many items into the shopping basket there, but there’s a bit going on all right. Medium bodied, juicy and spicy, nuts and oranges, purple fruit, saline flavour, some grip and grain to the tannin, though by and large a gentle touch, and a tangy dried herb laced finish of good length. Full Mataro show on offer here. Drink : 2017 - 2026
