2020 Koonowla
Single Vineyard Shiraz/Mataro

Two varieties with noble pedigree in the Clare Valley, their blending historically respected andregarded as one of the region’s signature styles.

This Bass Hill single-vineyard collaboration showcases the synergy of such an alliance, the opulence of its Shiraz connecting naturally with Mataro’s dark and exotic spice complexities.
Rich, purple fruits and a squeezing of blackberry juiciness gets a light dusting of French oak, the palate alive with seasonal flavours in an impressive, full-bodied partnership.

Aroma

Crushed red fruits, spicy-earthy scents

Palate

A crush of crimson to purple fruits and the juice of blackberry all point to just bursting, ripe Shiraz, while earthy tones and dark spice seasonings tell us Mataro is its perfect partner. A light dusting of French oak wraps it all together in a full-bodied style that finishes with a firm hand.
