As much as the world news gives us much to scratch our heads about, there is also much to make us, well me anyway, realise there is also much to be thankful for.
In Spain at the moment they are protesting about stuff that I have a slight understanding about but I can’t fully appreciate. If it was wine related, well, that would be a different story.
I reckon the French, for instance, would be marching the streets if they knew a winery in little Tasmania, a far off place in Australia, could come up with a Merlot based blend that could get so close as to poke them in the eye, colloquially speaking of course.
A lovely deep, youthful red colour. Stick your nose in the fresh berry trough and that’s exactly what you’ll smell for ages. Deeeee-lightful! The drinking bit was easy thanks to those berries again providing plenty of flavour plus a hint of black/white pepper. Plum fruit characteristics doing the job expected giving that mid palate coating and considerable length too. Another successful Mattock release. Great news indeed.
