Harmonious red

Moorilla St Matthias Vineyard Cloth Label Red 2013, Tasmania, AUD $110

This is an intriguing and captivating wine, multi-varietal in composition, sourced from Moorilla’s St Matthias vineyard, though not strictly a field blend. Instead, it is a suite of varieties which represents the vineyard as a whole. It is a skilful composition indeed, with no one variety dominating the sensory profile. Pinot noir, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and riesling present as a harmonious chorus.

It is aromatically exciting with vibrant raspberry fruit, white pepper and a hint of green peppercorn. The red-fruited, medium-bodied, palate has intensity, clarity and elegance. (Screwcap)
