Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Nose: Aromas of tar, forest berries, black peppercorn & dry spices.
Palate: The wine was held back for a year to let the tannins loosen and develop the characteristics that present on the nose.
Notes: [The Winemakers] picked the Mataro before it became too ripe, placed it in an open fermenter with plenty of whole bunches intact. This wine is a little wild, with lovely tannins, and gorgeous aromas.
