Sussex Squire – OLD VINE Mataro – 2020

$45.00

Fruit sourced from 30-40yo vines from the Armagh region of the Clare Valley.  A new release showcasing depth and complexity in the fruit that older more mature vines can express. Low producing vines  have produced lucious flavours of  blackberry and blueberry  entwined with flavours of new French oak to highlight the beauty of this variety and it’s quality as a single variety wine.  Aged in new French oak for 18 months to add to the depth of fruit complexity with lovely elegant French oak toasty notes. This wine would enjoy extended cellaring to bring out the best of the oak and fruit integration producing a lovely rich wine with depth and silky finish.
