Wendouree Shiraz-Mataro 2016

"Here be 60% Shiraz and 40% Mataro from 1893 Central, 1919 Eastern, and 1920 Eastern bush vines. History.


I love the meaty hazelnut thing that Mataro brings to the table, and that umami character is strong here. Blackberry, some spice, mint chocolate, camphor in the background. Medium to full-bodied, quite tannic, perhaps a little raw and blocky, furry maybe, at least within the frame of reference for the 2016 Cabernet / Malbec wines from Wendouree. Acidity is fresh, cool and fine, It’s somewhat primal, and primary. Unresolved, though I suspect time may treat it well. Let’s see."
