Gomersal Wines Lyndoch Road Shiraz Mataro 2018

Share

From a small but highly regarded producer out of the Barossa Valley, one with a long history, which is well known for quality reds. This wine is from a low yielding vineyard, fermented on skins for a period of ten days and then enjoyed extended maturation in a mix of American oak, new and older, for 19 months. It is a blend of 85% Shiraz and 15% Mataro. The colour is opaque purple, near black. The aromas weave through warm earth and coffee beans, soon overtaken by dark chocolate, cassis, plums and black fruits. This is an impressive and exciting wine. Moving to the palate, there is a brief flick of a red apple note. The wine is soft and supple, with really fine acidity adding to the freshness and life. Good length which maintains the intensity throughout. Delicious now (discovered that I had written that a couple of times in my notes) but has a good future, at least a decade. From an excellent vintage, this is terrific value.
