About

For a winemaker just dipping his toe into the world as a solo producer, Pete Hiscock has released a brilliant suite of wines from 2014.

Three wines. Each an absolute pearler.

This is his Mataro from only 17-year-old vines in the Barossa. It has lift and spice with oak playing only a low-key role. Pete says this shows the “darker more animalistic side” of the variety. Campbell Mattinson agreed that it was delicious drinking saying, “the overall effect thoroughly charming.” - 93 points.

With only 47 dozen released, this is the most limited of the Rock of Wisdom wines. If you want to try it, you’ll have to be quick.

What It Tastes Like

“It has a brightness. It’s both leathery and sweet berried with plenty of clove and five-spice characters, the overall effect thoroughly charming. There’s a jubeyness here, an exuberance. Oak plays little role. Positives abound.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
