Saltfleet Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2022


Grenache is all the fashion in the McLaren Vale these days, but I think in most cases, it’s best blended. This is a beautiful homage to McLaren Vale, with ripe red and black fruits, violets, chocolate, sweet and savoury spice and pipe tobacco. Texturally complex with a combination of silk, fluffy lanolin and cashmere. Pure, curvy and juicy, with a great depth of flavour and an overall impression of great polish. Triumphant wine, and an absolute bargain. Waters Wine Co


“A blend of three individual parcels, Grenache from Blewitt Springs, Shiraz from McLaren Vale and Mataro from Sellicks Hill. Hand-harvested with strict vineyard selection. Fermented separately. 10 months in old French oak. Selected barrels at blending. The result; a deep layered flavour profile that is concentrated and balanced. The aroma is rich and complex, mixing notes of dark berries, spice and hints of leather with a subtle floral aroma. Medium to full bodied, with flavours of ripe red fruit, raspberry, cherry, mixed with a savoury spice. The tannins are well structured, offering a pleasant and polished mouth feel while the finish is long, nuanced and satisfying. Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years.” – Saltfleet
