Woods Crampton ‘Marschall Vineyard’ Barossa Valley Mataro 2014

Mourvedre from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 08-Mar-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with black and garnet hues, lighter on the rim. This has a full, soft and broad, accessible bose of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit aromas intermixed with soft, warn earth, and gently spicy, herbal notes. This is harmonious and mellow in presentation. Medium-bodied, the palate is full, open and up-front with flavours of ripe black berried fruits and plums, a touch of spice nd eathy complexity, unfolding sweet herb and minty elements. The mouthfeel is open with plenty of tannin grip and structure, and soft, integrated acidity lending roundness to the textures. The wine flows to a soft, sustained plummy finish. This is an up-front, rounded and accessible Mataro with ripe black berry and plum fruits, spices and plenty of extract. Match with game meat and casseroles over the next 5+ years. 95% Mataro and 5% Grenache from the 80 y.o. ‘Marschall’ vineyard in Vine Vale, hand-picked, given a cold soak and fermented with approx. 15% whole bunches to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in old 480 L oak. 365 cases made. Winemakers: Nicholas Crampton and Aaron Woods. 17.5/20 Mar 2016 RRP AUS$30.00
