Saint Petri Grenache Shiraz Mataro

The wine is a blend of three grape varieties from three different vineyards in South Australia's Barossa Valley. Grenache has been sourced from Rowland Flat sub region and containing vine of 50 plus years of age. Both the Mataro (circa 1914 planting) and the Shiraz are from sand over clay soils in the Nuriootpa sub region at approx 280m elevation. In these vineyards we produce Grenache with layers of fruit and texture, the Mataro is dark and savoury and the Shiraz round out the palate with its lusciousness.

Vibrant cherry hues and dense red cherries and strawberry hints on the bouquet with savoury flavours of green olive and seasame crackers. Silky velvet tannins and red jubes fill the palate, with a round moderate body, seamlessly balanced.
Crafted under the guiding hand of chief winemaker, Emma Norbiato, the fruit is handpicked and sorted to ensure perfect fruit reaches the fermenter. The Individual parcels were fermented on skins for eight days in our 60 year old bespoke concrete vats before being gently pressed and later completing malolactic fermentation in barrel. Matured individually in selected high quality French oak barrels (predominately new oak), allowing the wines to soften and develop gracefully. After 12 months of maturation, the winemaking team tasted and selected individual barrels to ensure the wines are at their best prior to blending.
Calabria Saint Petri Grenache Shiraz Mataro is enjoyable now but will reward with medium term cellaring. Perfect with rich, grass fed meat dishes or quality game.
