Allevare McLaren Vale Mataro 2022
$ 34.00 incl. GST
Stepping outside of Victoria for this one, and what a pretty and fine iteration of Mataro here, Lucy introduced to a fantastic grower of organic Mataro by former colleague Nick from Stoke Wines. The wine sees 2 weeks on skins and twice-daily pump overs, before pressing to old French oak barrels for 10 months before bottling.
Conceived as a fruit forward, juicy and not overly tannic wine, this is so fresh, slurpy and lively – smoked charcuterie/smallgoods lead the nose, with a lovely fruit spectrum of black plums, blackberry, cherries and a shake of Chinese five-spice. Focused and beautifully textured, fun and flowing, definitely the guzzler of the range.
