Macho mataro

Turkey Flat Mataro 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $32

The colour is deep red-purple and there are smoky, herbal and charred wood aromas with a twist of black pepper. The palate is very firm and tannic with savoury sooty, earthy, smoke and pepper notes. A boots-and-all wine; dense, powerful and slightly raw in its youth. (Screwcap)
