Caillard Mataro 2008

Based on an original woodblock by Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) who produced this image during the 1840s, the same time that Mataro, or Mourvedre became an important grape variety in Australia. The waratah, a native flower (on the bottom left) evokes New South Wales where the variety was first imported probably by James Busby in 1830s
