Mataro is one of Clare Valley’s red wine treasures, respected for its role in adding a robust backbone to many highly prized blends. In our Bass Hill Vineyard, however, it has shown such an engaging personality that we couldn’t help but feature it on its own, a single varietal with endless qualities.
Colour: Ruby rimmed with darker plum core
Aroma: Brooding, earthy, rustic and savoury
Palate: Without doubt a pure, red grape expression with a rustic, summer-in-the-country feel through its ripe black fruits and earthy spice seasoning notes. Mataro, and ours shows this clearly, comes with an almost meat braise sense, here umami notes layered with dark Asian spices. So much to take in, finishing with a chewy, lip-smacking richness. Southern Clare comfort in a glass.
Closure: Screw cap
