Description

"First planted in Barossa in the 1850’s, the region is today a rich source of old vine Mataro, including the oldest known vineyards in the world. Our relationships with local grape growing families provide privileged access to many exceptional old Mataro vineyards from which we produce wine for our Plexus Red blend. Encouraged by the response to our initial bottlings of small parcels of Grenache under the Annexus label, we extended the idea of presenting the best of the varietal components of Plexus to Mataro. Aromas of deep dark fruits, hints of rose and violet and smoky earth. On the palate, layers of black plum, blackberry, blueberry and amaro notes supported by well-defined tannins, finishing long and clean with pleasing savouriness and slatey minerality." - Winemaker Notes 

"Mataro sourced from 100-year-old, dry-grown bush vines in Light Pass. Dark plum, mulberry and macerated berry fruit are cut with notes of exotic spice, hanging meats, licorice, earth and light purple floral tones. There is a lovely fruit density and texture here, pure yet savoury edged with tight, sandy tannin support and a spicy red and dark-fruited finish. Proof that mataro is capable of greatness.” - 96 Points, Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
