I do this blog for fun, the wines here are some of the very few I can be bothered to write up. The cream has risen.

Gomersal Wines Mataro 2008

The Gomersal area of the Barossa is west of Tanunda, and in my self educated opinion a particularly good region for Mataro. The grapes for this wine are grown as bush vines and are extremely low yielding at half a tonne per acre.

Medium bodied but with a good backbone, north African style spicy and intense flavours, the fruit is mainly red and blue, with mouth watering acid on the finish.

This is the current release and rather nice to see Mataro coming out with a fair bit of age, as it is a grape that really does benefit from some bottle time. Try to keep some for another 10 years though.

Highly Recommended+++

Apologies for a short review, I am in too much of a holiday mode just now to write more, even if the wine deserves it.
