At the end of our old vine garden path there is a historic ‘March Hare of the Barossa’ Mataro vineyard at Tam and Jessie Auricht’s near Marananga in the Barossa. The March Hare Vineyard is also ideal at attracting wildlife, including hares who from the first colour in the grapes madly attack the fruit from March onwards and from all directions. After hand picking selected bunches of our March Hare of the Barossa in the last week of March our winemaker Elena Brooks let the whole bunches ferment together in open top fermenters with ambient or ‘other peoples’ yeasts and hand plunging for 14 days, before basket pressing into some new but majority old French and American oak barriques to then mature for a further 20 months in the same oak before bottling with minimal winemaking artifact to capture the essence of the vineyard - its time and place, a wish come true and a looking glass, if you will and will reward cellaring and decanting.

Grape Variety

Mataro Mouvedre





Wine Style

Red - big, bold, full-bodied


Textural yet tight; blanketing but precise. Broad, grainy fruits and berries roll alongside a gentle swell of soft tannins. There is chalkiness and minerality; this is a dry red wine, but there lurks a plushness. A gentle giant - with that precision acidity keeping all the earthy and ripe component parts just so. Balanced. More please...

Dietary Notes




Food Pairing

This wine’s line and length make it versatile when it comes to luncheon. Spicy chorizo, olives and some manchego. Or with it’s evenly keeled richness try some duck in the manner of Szechuan.
