"Well named; the Barossa Valley origin of its grenache mataro shiraz blend would not be easy to differentiate from top end McLaren Vale examples. Spiced plum, blackberry, and a contrasting nuance of savoury, earthy notes from the mataro providing backbone, all come together perfectly." 95 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2015.

Nose

Aromas of deep set plum and dark berry fruits leap from the glass with hints of Asian spice, roasted meats, mataro earthiness, licorice and dark chocolate.

Palate

The blend percentages for Avatar might change each vintage, but the recipe doesn't vary much..Grenache (about 50% in 2013) for spice and bright red fruits, Mataro (30%) for some savoury earthiness and depth.Shiraz (20%) for plump plum and rich black fruit. The time in oakand the choice of old seasoned oakensures it serves only as a seasoning to add complexity and savoury nuance. With vines this old, the fruit and earth to speak with the clearest voice.
