ST HALLETT MATARO
Mataro was one of the first varieties of grapes planted in the Barossa and the traditional characteristics of this wine hint at the vineyard’s rich history. The seeds of the St Hallett story were planted back in 1838 when Yohanne Linder arrived in Australia from Europe to start a new life, setting down roots in the Barossa. His grandson Pop planted the first Old Block vineyard in 1912, but the birth of St Hallett winery was yet to come.
Mataro is a charismatic variety of wine with great structure, and in St Hallett Mataro you will be enticed by the savoury aroma of plum, smoked meats and dried herb characters. You will be further captivated by the profound structure with dense blackberry, ash and intense tannins. Perhaps best summed up by St Hallett’s own box packer, Jon, “It’s dark and mysterious, just the way I like it.”
