2014 Estate Grenache / Mataro

TASTING NOTES

This blend of two Barossa classics is intended to be a medium bodied wine with delicate flavours and incredible texture. Red fruit aromas don’t disappoint on the palate, raspberries and strawberries up front are interwoven with spice and soft savoury tannins. A very smooth, fruit driven, soft easy drinking style. It’s a wine to share.

Description

The wines produced from the vintage of 2014 are excellent. The weather conditions during spring and early summer were dry and above average heat degree-days regulated shoot growth and berry development. By mid February and well into veraison, soil moisture levels were extremely low but a record-breaking rain event replenished the soils. The weather conditions that followed were ideal. ‘Balanced’ probably best describes most wines from our harvest this year.

This is a blend of our families three estate vineyards,aptly named Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz. The three sites are located on the western ridge of Barossa Valley, in the sub districts of Marananga and Seppeltsfield. The gentle rugged terrain gives rise to unique growing aspects together with the oldest soils of Barossa Valley. This wine brings about complexity derived from blending, it delivers a persistent yet very smooth palate.

70% Grenache, 30% Mataro with each variety vinified separately. This process is to ensure each wine component is picked, vinified and matured using techniques tailored to the specific grape variety. Of the 70% Grenache, 50% is a whole bunch ferment. The final blend for this wine is only assembled 3 weeks prior to bottling.
