Turkey Flat Mataro
“An enticing bouquet of wild forest berries with a savoury and silky finish.”
Barossa Valley, South Australia
now – 2029
Mataro (Mourvèdre) was brought to Australia by James Busby in 1832 from Perpignan in the Roussillon in Southern France and has shown its suitability to the Barossa Valley climate exceptionally well ever since. The broad appeal to Mataro lies in its earthy ruggedness and ability to show finesse and structure.
This is a fresh and exciting representation of Mataro. The opening bouquet hints of blueberries and jubes. A touch of savory with sophistication sees this playful and seamless wine coat the palate with joy. Subtle oak integration over a brief eight months adds fine tannins to the finish.
Ripeness levels are critical to producing Mataro with this rich level of fruit & spice. Careful selection of French oak enhances the fruit characters and structure of this wine.
