Fabulous Expression of this Heritage variety
Glug 'Pegleg' Barossa Valley Mataro 2020

Region:Barossa Valley, South Australia

Our long apprenticeship with Mataro is over.

When we settled in the Barossa we built an office in the Rolf Binder winery. Directly behind this winery is the best plot of old bush vine Mataro in the Barossa Valley. These vines date from 1880 to 1882 and are used in the Rolf Binder Bulls Blood which began back in 1955.

So it was that we learnt from Rolf the mysteries of Mataro and the winemaking that brings out the best of this heritage variety. Working with Grenache and Mataro were projects we commenced at this time and combinations of both are vital in our winemaking.

In my retail days of the 1980s wines specifically made from these varieties were seldom made as the customer need was zero. This meant the grapes were picked and became part a red wine called Barossa Valley. I may add it was also not easy to find wines which were labelled Barossa Valley as the wines were used in large companies ‘big name brands’ which were blends from many districts. Thankfully we are now in a more enlightened time.

Price: $13.80
