Description

Within Lou Miranda Estate vineyards in the Southern Barossa Valley there is a block of bush vine Mataro planted in 1898 making the vines 119 years old for the 2017 vintage. The fruit is sourced from this block, its intensely brooding earthy savoury flavours and tannins. This is blended with Centenarian Shiraz planted in 1907, the fruit from this block gave rich concentrated fruit flavours with clove. The combination creates a very distinctive highly aromatic flavoursome red wine.
The wine experience will be of a complex aroma of ripe dark berries, plum and spicy notes with savoury dense chewy satisfying tannins. The abundant pronounced tannins of the Mataro for which the variety in known is complemented by the plush richness of Centenarian Shiraz.
The Shiraz Mataro blend has spent 36 months in predominately seasoned American oak to tame the Mataro tannins and complex the exuberant primary fruit of the Shiraz. The result is a wine that is synergistic and harmonised combining the strength of each variety with the palate having generous complexity, length, structure and rich fruit character combined with oak derived characters and spice with fully matured tannins adding a savoury textural element.
Lingering plum mocha toasty flavours on the finish ensures this deep dark red wine has amazing length and persistence.
Please enjoy this limited release wine with truffle pasta or beef wellington. It will pair well with dark chocolate. We recommend decanting prior to serving to enhance your enjoyment
