The inspiration from the Barossa’s bestold vine Mataro vineyards created the inaugural Annexus Mataro. It is a small selection from low yielding, dry grown Centenarian vines in Light Pass, made only in the best years.


WINEMAKING:

Fermentation occurred in a small open top stainless-steel fermenter.

100% barrel matured for 15 months, in mainly older French oak hogsheads (300 litres).


VINTAGE:
The growing season was characterised by plentiful early rains and then record rainfall for September of 162 mm, welcome relief after a few lean years. Summer saw very few extreme heat days, with temperatures being below the long- term average. These conditions produced a later start to vintage, and flavour coming in at lower Baume. This is a vintage of fruit brightness, lovely supporting acidity and softer tannins.


TASTING NOTES:
Vibrant purple red.

Savoury, spicy fruit aromatics, with lifted red cherry and anise supported by hints of earth, and leather.

Medium bodied, showing a vibrant and fresh core of bramble, mulberry and plum fruit. Bright acidity and poised tannins round out the sleek-textured, moreish finish.
