Mezzo Shiraz Mataro 2015

Shiraz Mataro - not a common blend but one I'd like to see more of. I made some myself in 2014 so I have a vested interested in it. I've even nicknamed it Shitaro - I reckon it can catch on too.

The fruit here is from the Tatiara District which sits half way (Mezzo) between Adelaide and Melbourne, the vineyard was planted in 1988. It's directly north of Coonawarra, no more than a 90 minute drive.

Deceptively smooth with lots of delish factor. A 90/10 blend, blackberry fruit, dark cherries and meaty through the middle, cinnamon and baking type spices roll through with ease. Some vanilla hovers about too. Delivery is smooth, long and moreish - worth getting hold of if you can find it. Good value too.

Drink now and over the next few years.

91/100 - Very good
