RIGHTEOUS MATARO 2015

Righteous Mataro is back with the 2015 vintage – already catching the critics eyes with 90 plus scores and reviews from some of the toughest in the business – this rare vineyard comes through again.

 

“From a single vineyard in Moppa, aged 18 months, 30% new French oak, and offered in the same heavy bottle as its namesake shiraz. This is reined-in, the sweet fruit expressive, a floral lift and a touch of eucalypt with savoury layers across the full-bodied palate of salumi, coffee grounds, wood smoke and iron. Certainly, it is rich and ripe but holds its 15% alcohol well, everything integrated .” 95 points = gold

“A super bold and ripe statement of intense black fruit and wild herbs, all wrapped in a swathe of dense, defined and rich tannin. There’s an earthy and almost inky thread here, too. Tangy finish.”  92 points

“The first release of our top level Mataro was in 2006 and again in the excellent 2009 vintage….this same vineyard has blown us away and made it into the 2011 and now the Teusner Righteous Mataro 2105.  The critics have already given a nod to how good the vineyard and vintage was for 2015. This fruit salad” vineyard …..an old-school, Barossan mixed planting….predominately Grenache but if you look closely, amongst those floppy Grenache vines you’ll see about every fourth vine has slightly different coloured leaves and stands up straighter….these are the Mataro vines that the Roennfeldt family pick separately for us. Planted in the Marananga sub-region in the 1930’s on red-brown loams over clay, the 0.3ha Roennfeldt Dirks Block vineyard lies in a fairly flat section with a North/South orientation. The fruit is hand-picked and goes through fermentation in open-vats before being aged for two years in oak – 30% new oak (50% French/50% American) and 70% old oak which is a blend, again, of French and American. It then makes its way to bottle without fining or filtration and with minimal sulphur.”KYM TEUSNER, WINEMAKER
