BAROSSA VALLEY MATARO
DELIGHTFULLY EVOCATIVE OF ITS EARTHY BAROSSA ROOTS, THIS EXPRESSIVE, GRACEFUL AND CAPTIVATING WINE HAS COMPLEX DARK PURPLE FRUITS, EXOTIC SPICES AND HINTS OF VIOLET FLORALS ON THE NOSE. THE PALATE IS SLEEK, SUPPLE AND LIVELY – MEDIUM-BODIED, WITH PLENTY OF SOFT, GENEROUS FRUIT AND LONG, SATINY TANNINS.
A modern take on a traditional variety, a fresh, uncomplicated approach to winemaking allows the fruit to speak for itself.
Sonntag Vineyard at Stonewell & Hahn Vineyard at Light Pass
Gentle handling during fermentation on skins in small, traditional open fermenters, has allowed for optimum extraction of flavour and fine, balanced tannins. The wine was matured in seasoned, spicy oak for 15 months to soften and develop richness and complexity without picking up dominant oak flavour.
Alc/Vol: 14.5% | Acidity: 6.1 g/L | pH: 3.50
This bright, modern wine features plenty of fruit and a smooth, supple palate on release. With careful short to medium-term ageing it will develop further subtle complexity.
Great with crispy five-spice duck; mushroom, thyme and goats curd tart; roast root vegetables; or sizzling lamb with ginger and Szechuan pepper.
