Mataro has been widely used in Spain and Southern France (Rhône) since 500BC and has been planted in McLaren Vale for decades. Mataro is prized for its great tannic structure and its ability to produce wines with wild, gamey flavours mixed with soft red fruits.
Famous for earthy and fresh spice characters, the palate of Rosemount’s Mataro shows smoked spices, red berry and sweet raspberry flavours enhanced by complex earthly spice.
The rich texture of this wine is supported by a fine tannin balance and subtle pepper finish.
The Rosemount Mataro is sourced from a single vineyard from our estate vineyard in the heart of McLaren Vale.
Fantastic with grilled or roasted red meat and game with hearty vegetables.
