It's supple and silky, the mouthfeel superb.
About The Wine
This is the best value way to get yourself an introduction to the superb Barossan wines of James Halliday's 2021 Winemaker of the Year, Brett Grocke.
Barossa Mataro is often the bridesmaid, rarely the bride. Here, Grocke puts it front and centre with Shiraz working the back-up mic.
Mataro from the Hoffmann Sand Block vineyard is framed by 25% Shiraz from Brett's Magnolia block into a smooth, seductive red wine that delivers outrageous value for money.
It's deep, earthy, savoury and stacked with ripe, open fruit. It's the perfect everyday Barossa red from a rising star of the region.
Eperosa is Brett Grocke's heart and soul.
Grocke is a fifth generation born and raised Barossa viticulturalist/winemaker. Eperosa is the vessel through which he tells the stories of the small patches of the Barossa which he has cared for his whole life. He works with long-established vineyards planted on ancient soils and channels the regional warmth, richness and power of the Barossa with a deft artist's touch.
These wines are honest, robust and made with minimal intervention. A true representation of the modern Barossa with old vines and a rich family heritage as the backdrop.
Grocke's star is on the rise, being named James Halliday's Winemaker of the Year for 2021.
