Aphelion The Emergent Mataro 2017

$35.00 per bottle

 

Variety: Mataro from three vineyards running the length of McLaren Vale.

 

Summary: A beautiful mix of savoury characters and bright red fruits. Complexity builds in the glass.

 

Tasting Note: The aromatics of this wine jump out the glass with sage, cherry spice and fresh almonds. Powdery tannins provide a canvas for the flavours that wash across the medium bodied palate, and bright acidity keeps the wine fresh and vibrant. Our 2017 Mataro has a very long finish and persistent drive with an elegant fruit profile.

 

Goes With Food: Very food friendly due to its savoury characters – try with duck rillettes and fresh crusty bread.

 

Goes With Cheese: An aged Pecorino would match the body of the wine and complement it’s acidity and spiciness.

 

Goes With Music: Vance Joy – Lay It On Me

 

Goes With Life: When the inspiration strikes to try something a little left of centre.

 

Serve At: 16-18 degrees Celsius. Unfined & unfiltered so some sediment may remain – we recommend decanting.

 

When to Drink: Ready to drink now, but will continue evolving through to 2030.

 

Vineyard: Sourced from three vineyards. The first is in Blewitt Springs, the climatically coolest part of the Vale. The second vineyard is a couple of kilometres south of Willunga town. The third vineyard is in the Sellicks foothills further South.

 

Winemaking: All three Mataro batches received different treatment in the winery. The Blewitt Springs Mataro was 50% fermented as whole clusters of grapes. The Willunga ferment was cold soaked for 4 days prior to ferment to allow non-primary ferment extraction of colour and tannin. The Sellicks portion was kept on skins post ferment for 3 months. All batches were matured in neutral French oak before blending and bottling in July 2018.

Unfined & unfiltered.

 

Production: 150 dozen produced under screwcap.
