Product Details

Hutton Vale Farm Grenache Mataro 2012 South Australia Eden Valley

$59.95

Hutton Vale Farm Grenache Mataro 2012 On the nose there’s plenty of ripe plum, strawberry, charcuterie, licorice, leather polish and salted dried herbs. The palate is rich and complex, loaded with a blend of red and black fruits, salted licorice, savoury nuances and a fine tannin line finishing soft and supple.

“…It mixes sweet, leathery, port-like fruit with earth, anise and spice notes, and does so pretty well. It’s certainly enjoyable. It’s not particularly dark but it floods the mouth with flavour. There is some alcohol warmth but it’s not distracting. Saltbush characters add an extra element to the finish. And tannin is beautifully formed, and fine. Essence of Barossa; oak is completely unobtrusive.”

The grenache vineyard was planted by Colin Angas in the 1960’s. Some of the original plantings failed to take to their new home and had to be replaced. New cuttings were hastily acquired, which time revealed to be mataro. No one considered to start over again and the mataro makes a splendid partner for the grenache.

Hutton Vale Farm is an award-winning boutique wine producer; the Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache vines are taken from some of Australia’s oldest plantings.

In 1987, John Duval, then Penfold’s Grange winemaker, mentored the Angas family in making their first wine, to help them to appreciate the fruit they were growing.

The quality and intensity of colour and flavour of the grapes were powerful factors in their conviction to begin making small batch wines. John Duval was also convinced and continues to purchase parcels of fruit for his own label.
