The 2019 Seppeltsfield Barossa Mataro is grown across a selection of sub-regions of the Barossa. Mataro's consistency to perform well in the Barossa - providing structure, ripeness and flavour - has been evident since the 1800s, particularly as one of the backbone varieties to the region's earliest fortified wine styles. When adequately ripened in the vineyard, as a straight varietal expression, Mataro can strike great balance between savoury aromatics, fleshy palate and pliable tannin.
The 2019 Barossa Mataro is crafted in a 'joven' style - released young and without oak maturation. The Mataro was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin.
