The Wine

The growing season was defined by a continuously warm to hot summer with no effective rainfall, wind and hail at flowering, and followed with three major frosts - resulting in an earlier and much smaller harvest than average. These tough conditions produced smaller clusters of intensely dark berries with thick fleshy skins contrasted against brown mature stalks. Whilst yields were down, once these vineyards were fermenting in our cellar the concentration of colour, tannin and aroma of the 2019 vintage was revealed.

Bright, lifted and aromatic with notes of purple and blue fruits such as mulberry, blueberry and red plums. The nose also shows savoury notes of garrigue, black olive, charcuterie and sarsaparilla. A firm, fleshy tannin grip envelops the long fine acids and textural mouthfeel provided by dense old vine Mataro. A wine for enjoyment with game meats, lamb or vegetarian eggplant based dishes like Greek moussaka or Provencale ratatouille. 2021-2029
