Turkey Flat Mataro
“A playful and seamless wine that coats the palate in joy”
Barossa Valley, South Australia
now – 2021
Turkey Flat’s Mataro is a savoury, rustic wine that speaks about the warmth of the Barossa Valley’s earth. Rich in spice and full of fruit with a backbone of dusty tannin. This variety is known by many names, including Mourvèdre (as previous vintages of this wine were called).
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.
A fresh and exciting representation of Mataro. The opening bouquet is full of blueberries and jubes. Gently savoury though classy. Subtle oak integration over a brief eight months adds fine tannins to the finish.
