2016 Mattschoss Shiraz
The Mattschoss vineyard is our highest Shiraz vineyard in Eden Valley at an elevation of 489m. The Shiraz block sits in a little amphitheatre which surrounds a rocky outcrop covered in distinctive native vegetation called yuccas. The soil type here consists of very little topsoil, incorporating meta-sandstone, marble and ironstone. The Mattschoss family have spent years focusing on quality in the vineyard and it is now realising it’s true potential. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the fruits of this passion and labour.
The palate has bright blueberry and cranberry fruit flavours with pepper, spice and herbs in the background. This is a wine of line and length that shows its origin.
