2016 ANNEXUS

The inspiration from the Barossa’s best old 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.

Region: Barossa Valley

Varieties: Mataro was sourced from a dry grown centenarian vineyard in the Light Pass subdistrict of the Barossa Valley.

Winemaking: Fermentation in small open top fermenters incorporating a small amount of whole bunches.

Oak Maturation: 100% barrel maturated for 12 months, in older French oak hogsheads (300 litre barrels).

Technical Notes:
Alcohol 14%
pH 3.51
TA 6.4 g/l

Tasting:

  • Colour: Vibrant purple-red.
  • Nose: Savoury, spicy fruit aromatics with lifted plum and red cherry supported by hints of earth and leather.
  • Palate: Medium bodied, showing restrained power. Rich and pure with a seductive core of mulberry and plum fruit, supported by ample, long flowing waves of tannin.
