Ballycroft Small Berry Mataro 2016

Winemaker Joe Evans replaced the headboards on these Barrels, essentially old oak, with a touch of new. Savoury notes, something grassy, sitting over that glorious deep Plum and black cherry Mataro fruit. 

That's where I Succumb to the depth of Mataro and its come hither ways. It possesses a nutty, licorice, blue and black fruited manner, here perhaps stronger than I would even yield to. Some, perhaps, may seek to find fault, rather I embrace the darkness and the persistence of flavour on offer here. 92
