Winefront - 2012 Mataro Grenache Shiraz

Have to say, from what I’ve tasted, 2012 is certainly a vintage where you can start to believe the hype.

Spice, nuts, flowers, blood plum, a little chocolate and liquorice – sweetly fruited, yet it pulls savoury and firm. And boy oh boy, as the hungry cartoon dog says, is this a delicious wine. Pleasantly gritty tannin, gentle slipperiness, balanced acidity and lip smacking pure fruit appeal and hazelnutty flavours bring it home. Let’s rate it appropriately highly, I think.

Gary Walsh.
