Kilikanoon Clare Valley Baudinet Mataro (6-pack) 2015 x6
$330.00 + DELIVERY
Seasoned French hogsheads for 18 months.
Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
An unmistakeable Mataro nose of wild olive, charcuterie, dark cherries and tar, beautifully underpinned by charry French oak.
The perfectly poised palate, one that plays the primary fruit characters of dark cherries, roast meats and tar right alongside the fine boned tannins, spicy oak and lingering acid in an engaging and persistent finish.
Grown on the Trillian's Hill Vineyard to the east of Penwortham. Trillian's Hill is one of the highest and therefore coolest vineyard sites in the Clare Valley with an altitude of 550 metres at its highest point. The mild dry climate and cool nights during the ripening period are perfectly suited to the Mataro variety. 2015 was characterised by a very wet winter followed by a dry and warm spring and early summer. The ample sub soil moisture from winter rain allowed these dry grown vines to flourish in the warm, dry growing season.
