2019 Mataro 750mL

The cuttings for this vineyard were taken from old vine material near Marananga and planted as bush vines in 2000.

The vines proved far too vigorous and have been trained on double cordons in order to take up some of their energy but even with minimal water they are prolific grape producers.

It has taken a number of years to perfect bunch pruning and trellising methods of the block and this small block now produces delicious, fruit forward evocations of this stalwart Barossan variety.

Released in the year following vintage, this bright and lively wine shows the hallmark Greenock Creek character of Dark Cherry, Chocolate, Nougat and Fig. Flinty/mineral tannins (as a result of a particularly hot vintage) carry notes common with aged Semillon & Riesling in a long and unfolding finish. 

The wine is matured in American oak for 21 months and bottled un-filtered and un-fined.
