About

Steve Crawford is doing things right under his own label. Focusing on small parcels of high quality (and in this case, organically and biodynamically farmed) fruit, treating it with care. All releases loaded with intrigue. Clearly part of the vanguard of the Barossa.

The 2015 Vine Vale ‘Tony’ Mataro is a refreshing take on the variety. A single old puncheon of fruit, destemmed, the stalks re-introduced later in the ferment to better infuse tannin and structure into the wine. 40-year-old vine fruit which feels youthful. It’s great stuff.

Mataro is a beautiful variety when handled in this way. A fascinating wine sure to raise a few eyebrows at your next dinner party.

What It Tastes Like

Blueberries, mulberries, some faint herbal scents that act like accents not scene stealers. Bouncy fragrance to it. It has a rustic feel to it, the suede tannins coming in waves. Some lip-smacking acidity adding freshness. Very charismatic wine. Nicely done.
