Mataro Shiraz (Australia)
- Our limited release Mataro Shiraz is a delicious bold blend full of Australian attitude. It has rich flavours of blackberry, plum, and black currant underscored with notes of chocolate, savoury nuances of dried herbs, pepper, and light smoke.
- Mataro (also known as Mourvèdre) and Shiraz are natural blending partners. They both have a long history in Australia where they are often combined with Grenache to make a GSM, which is one of the world’s most popular red wine blends. In those blends, Mataro usually plays a supporting role. With this limited release we omit the Grenache and bring bold and brooding Mataro to the forefront, showcasing its delicious black fruit flavours, high tannin, and smoky, earthy flavours. Fruit-forward Shiraz enhances the dark fruit and adds notes of chocolate and peppery spice.
- This bold wine pairs well with rich foods like beef short ribs, pork shoulder, gyros, Portobello mushroom burgers, ratatouille, charcuterie or firm aged cheeses.
