SKU: STHAMATSHZ18
The Mattschoss vineyard is our highest Shiraz vineyard in Eden Valley at an elevation of 489m. The Shiraz block sits in a little amphitheatre which surrounds a rocky outcrop covered in distinctive native vegetation called yuccas. The soil type here consists of very little topsoil, incorporating meta-sandstone, marble and ironstone. The Mattschoss family have spent years focusing on quality in theVineyard and it is now realising its true potential. Were thrilled to have the opportunity to show case the fruits of this passion and labour.

”Hand-picked fruit from 58yo vines at 498m elevation. Partial whole-bunch fermentation; matured 14 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels. The exotic spice of old vines unites with the fragrance of this cool, high site to produce a signature Eden Valley shiraz brimming with character, amplified by whole-bunch fermentation. Potpourri and spice of all kinds make way for a core of crunchy black/blueberry fruit, impeccably supported by dark chocolate French oak. Fine tannins will see it out for the medium term.”
