The nose offers up pleasant aromas of cherry, plum, wild blackberry, violet and smoke. The palate is compellingly soft and supported by fine tannins. This is a very smooth Mataro with fruit delivering sweetness on the finish.

Reviews
91 points – Rob Geddes MW Mataro is called Monastrell in Spain and Mourvedre in France so its confusion corner for this potentially great grape. Red fruits and red liquorice touched by green leaf aromas are spot on for the variety and the region.
91 points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit Offering sweet fruit flavours with attractive spicy nuances, the wine shows Black Doris plum, raspberry, olive, hazelnut and floral characters on the nose with hints of anise and olive. The palate delivers lovely weight and flow, backed by fine texture and polished tannins, leading to a long, pleasingly dry finish. At its best: now to 2025.
91 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix Dense deep brick red colour, plums with floral notes, herbal spicy tones and cedary oak are evident on the nose. Soft tannins, savoury spice, plums are balanced by clean acid to create a luscious mouth feel. Medium bodied and textural with a tight clean finish.
90 points (4 Stars) – Nick Butler, The Real Review A subtle and pretty violet-driven, fragrant wine, with torque coming from more traditonal meaty notes. Red fruits too. A healthy dose of acidity runs through this, just enough flesh and plenty of length. A softer, more poised expression of the variety. Drink 2019 – 2025.
