Kitchen Garden Mataro 2017

Award Winner

Behind the historic farm house, now home to Shingleback’s Tasting Room, in what used to be the old kitchen garden a small Mataro (Mourvédre) vineyard stands.

Today the restaurant kitchen produces fine local fare, enhancing our wines and welcoming visitors to “the Vale”.

Deep red. Brooding primary aromas of bramble and mulberry are enhanced with notes of earthy chocolate and spice. The generous palate overflows with rich blackberry flavours, balanced by a natural acidity.Moreish chewy and savoury tannins complete this medium to full bodied Mataro.
