Delivers the Best of Juicy Barossa Flavours
Harem 'Fatima' Barossa Valley Grenache Mataro 2018
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
The Harem Fatima is a riotous, juicy expression of two varieties, Grenache and Mataro. Together they reveal a voluminous, richly flavoured, even luxurious side to the Barossa Valley. The first release was a 2005 then a wait till 2009 with most vintages since. The Fatima is part of the Harem range which includes Rosita, Layla and the Sultan and highlights different expressions of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro as single varietals or blends, with the view of showing their many different facets.
That first release of 2005 developed from the earlier experiments of other winemakers which began in the 1980s the fruits of which are now seen across the Barossa Valley as now most artisanal winemakers release blends each vintage. Traditional winemaking in open vat fermenters was followed by 16 months in older barrels. This release is of 28 cases.
