94 Points James Halliday Wine Companion
"Attractive crimson colours, fresh blackberry, cranberry, herb garden, star anise aromas, generous slinky graphite textures, underlying spicy, grilled nut, chinotto notes and persistent linear freshness. With one year’s bottle age the fruit, oak and tannins have folded gently to bring a beautiful inky texture and complexity.” Andrew Caillard, MW

2014 Caillard Mataro, expressive and generous, articulates the beauty, warmth and refractive light of the Barossa Landscape. Mataro is one of the Barossa’s most evocative and beautiful grape varieties. It is a courageous battler that yields grace under the fire of the elements!
