Spinifex Old Vine Mataro 2012
2012 Old Vine Mataro
Single Vineyard - Sourced from a 90+ yo bush vine vineyard in the Barossa Valley sub-region of Lights Pass.
3 weeks on skins and then gently pressed off to spend 16 months in old French oak and then left to age gracefully in stainless steel.
The nose has hints of rhubarb amongst the savoury spice of anise and earthy notes that are the hallmark of great old vine Mataro.
The palate has a fine & savoury structure of darker fruits with fine tannins and balanced acidity to keep it fresh. This has all the restrained power of a true Old Vine beauty.
Cellar up to 15 years.
