Rock of Wisdom Mataro 2014

Smells lighter than Mataro oft does; shows meatiness, a little cured, fermented meat. Savoury, herbal, the presence of some stem inclusion noted. 

It's light, juicy, medium-bodied - possesses that airy, open-weave style that is inviting, and is just deliciously moreish. Offers a touch of depth with some chocolate that courses through the palate. 

Modern interpretation of the variety - and an example that furthers the cause of Mataro as a varietal. A yes from me (I know I know, it's Mataro) 92
