The Bin 2 blend of shiraz and mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Often used in fortified wine production, this grape is widely planted in Barossa Valley. It is valued by winemakers for its blending attributes.
Nose: The aromatics are dominated by brightly lifted red fruits of cranberry, red currant and rhubarb. Scents of freshly cured meats and block olive provide a savoury nuance.
Palate: The enticing aromatics are amplified on the palate. Lacy tannins provide structural foundations, with juicy red fruit acidity giving rise to a balanced medium-bodied wine.
