Mataro was brought to Australia by James Busby in 1832 from Perpignan in the Roussillon in southern France and has shown its suitability to the Barossa Valley climate exceptionally well ever since. The broad appeal to Mataro lies in its earthy ruggedness and ability to show finesse and structure. While often used as a blending component, at Turkey Flat we feel Mataro deserves to star in its own right as a single varietal.

A fresh and exciting representation of Mataro. An enticing bouquet of wild forest berries flows into a seamless wine that coats the palate in joy with a savoury and silky finish.

“Very attractive blueberry, blackcurrant, roasted-coffee, violet and fresh-leather notes with some meaty, spicy nuances, too. The palate has a very succulent and fleshy core of blueberry and plum flavors. Smooth and mellow tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap”.
