So often Mataro is relegated to a supporting role behind its more well known 'Rhone' siblings but for the Waxing Lyrical it is all about Mataro ‘Front and Centre’.
Stonewell Mataro (65%) Stonewell Shiraz (26%) Stonewell Grenache (9%)
Bright Cherry Red
Spicy Red Fruits over black currants coffee and well tanned leather
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 variety and aromatic lightness sometimes missing in wines from the Barossa.
The 2016 ‘Waxing Lyrical’ Mataro is a single Vineyard Wine made from two patches of vines grown on our ‘Stonewell Hill’ Vineyard. The 'Salt and Pepper' of the blend is 1923 Planted Survivor Vine Mataro, overlaid on 'Clare Clone' young vine Mataro. So often Mataro is relegated to a supporting role behind its more well known 'Rhone' siblings but for the Waxing Lyrical it is all about Mataro as a variety standing proud, ‘Front and Center’.
