New Release Mataro
Postcards of The Future 'Busy Farmer' Barossa Valley Mataro 2017
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
The first release of the Postcard wine series was done in conjunction with a McLaren Vale winemaker though since 2016 all responsibility belongs with Benjamin Parker. This range explores the red varieties of South Australia from premium regions though the emphasis is on the fruit of nature not the changes produced by winemakers.
With that said the Postcards are from the premium warm regions of South Australia so each variety shows oodles of ripe fruit and that fat, plumpness that comes from such fruit when it is not fussed over by winemakers pushing this expression to be something else. So the wine has no new oak and the back palate is not built with pressings. Even so wines of this style evolve in bottle for many years. This vintage was very favourable for Barossa Mataro and is the first Postcards to feature this variety.
