Matthew Rorick is one of California's rockabilly winemaking superstars.
His love for the unloved and obscure varieties dotted around his homeland combined with his stripped-back, bare-knuckle winemaking style have seen his small batches of 'Rare Creatures' develop a feverish cult following in the US of A.
In 2017 Rorick dropped into the Barossa Valley to catch up with friend and colleague Jaysen Collins (Massena Wines). Some sexy old-vine fruit made itself available. Rorick couldn't resist the chance to make a couple of wines from this alien patch of earth. And so, Songs From Mars was born.
A palpable driving energy pulses through the veins of both the white and the red release. A ludicrously small production of both make these indeed rare birds of a different feather.
