About

This is Clare Valley Mataro at it’s most delectable and delicious.

This comes from relatively young Mataro vines (17 years of age) in the Armagh area of the Clare Valley. All the fruit was hand-picked with about 30% whole bunches included. It was foot-stomped, naturally fermented and then basket pressed into old French oak barrels. It was unfined and unfiltered.

As Tonic put it themselves, “Did we nail the winemaking brief to make ‘delicious’ wine? We certainly think so… We love it.”

With only 150 dozen produced, this is one of the country’s most charming versions of Mataro and is remarkable value for a wine of such quality and interest. Giddy up!

What It Tastes Like

Graphite, purple fruit, red berries, pepper and violets in the bouquet. It tastes of suede tannins dappled with grilled meat, blackberry and a twist of spiced orange peel. It’s got swagger and some grunt but feels neatly tucked in. Shabby sheik in Mataro form. Great stuff.
