Chalk Hill Alpha Crucis Mataro Grenache 2022


A blend of 64% Mataro and 33% Grenache starts with intriguing iron and blood characters, followed by dark cocoa, blue plums, black cherries, and poached rhubarb sticks. The palate shows power and finesse simultaneously; tannins are granular, and the concentration of flavour is on point, yet somehow, the body is graceful like a ballerina. The end of the palate is all about elegance and freshness, leaving me to wonder how long this wine will reveal its true character.
