2015 'Waxing Lyrical' Mataro Shiraz Grenache

The 2015 ‘Waxing Lyrical’ Mataro Shiraz Grenache is a single Vineyard Wine made from Three small patches of vines grown on our ‘Stonewell Hill’ Vineyard. So often Mataro is relegated to a supporting role behind its more well known siblings Shiraz and Grenache but for the Waxing Lyrical I wanted it ‘Front and Centre’. In recent years I’ve tried a few Mataro dominant blends and basically they have inspired me to ‘have a crack’ myself.

Dozen Price $285.00


Production:

Stonewell Mataro (65%) Stonewell Shiraz (26%) Stonewell Grenache (9%)

Colour:

Bright Cherry Red

Nose:

Spicy Red Fruits over black currants coffee and well tanned leather

Palate:

Round summer red and black fruit interweave with spicy varietals and great acid balance. Light grippy tannins balance the fruit while firm acid cleanses the mouth for the next sip. Its a Complex and Lithe wine that displays the wonderful potential in this combination varieties and Aromatic lightness sometimes missing in wines from the Barossa.
