2018 Aphelion Wine Co. ‘Emergent’ Mataro - McLaren ValeRegular price $39.00
Good Mataro is savoury, herbal, a little bit meaty/charcuterie and loads of dark intense fruit flavours. The Emergent Mataro fits the bill perfectly.
Sage, cherry and almonds and a hint of grilled meat leaps from the glass. The palate is awash with dense dark fruit and meaty flavours. Bright acid keeps the palate dancing giving the wine a wonderful vibrancy. Powdery tannins keep everything in balance. This is good wine. Goes with duck, and roasted meat.
