"A 60/40 split on Shiraz and Mataro from 1893, 1919 and 1920 plantings. Clare Valley Mataro is a lovely thing. It’d be fascinating to try a straight Mataro from Wendouree.

Toasted hazelnuts and chocolate, red fruits, mint and cut fennel, floral perfume, and just parking all those descriptors, it’s just a really good wine to get your nose into, and inhale deeply. Not Dennis Hopper style in Blue Velvet — that would be strange — but more a stop-and-smell-the-roses kind of deal. Medium bodied, nutty and perfumed, red fruits and freshness, fine pumice stone tannin, a salt and sage seasoning gives it a bit of extra stuffing, and a clean boysenberry and spice finish of wonderful length finishes it off. So much character. So much goodness."
