2019 "Rej" | McLaren Vale


McLaren Vale never ceases to amaze us with its ability to produce wonderfully expressive fruit from a wide array of grape varieties.  Montepulciano (from the mid east coast of Italy) and Mataro (from Valencia, Spain) evidently thrive here, as this blend illustrates.  The Monty is grown in Willunga (where Rej the goat lives) and brings stucture and aromatic blueberries while the Mataro adds a rustic, earthy background to give the blend an interesting twist.  May be enjoyed in its youth but certainly has a long life ahead of it with careful cellaring (10+ years.)
