SKU: CAILLAPINX15
The limited release of 2015 Caillard Pinxit Mataro Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of an unexpected accident in the cellar, where five barrels of Mataro were mixed up with a barrel of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is surprisingly very different, but quite exciting. The extra year of aging has allowed the wine to build a silky complexity and sinuous mineral line with an understated power and viscosity that is immediately intriguing and different. Mataro was entirely sourced from Georgiadis Estate at Dorrien in the central Barossa Valley.

”When a mix-up in the cellar results in a barrel of Parker Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon blended with five barriques of Barossa Valley mataro, it's either a stuff-up or serendipity. Thankfully it's the latter. Pale-mid ruby; an intriguing mix of warm earth, ferrous, dried herbs and menthol to the satsuma plums and cassis fruit. It's exceptionally savoury with refreshing cranberry-like acidity, and slinky, fine tannins ensure this is a beautifully modulated wine. According to Andrew Caillard, who paints the labels, Pinxit means ‘one painted' used as a suffix to an artist's signature during the Middle Ages to guarantee authenticity.”
