Tim Smith is a super talented winemaker and one of Australia's most awarded. Tim Smith focuses on making wines from the region's time proven varietals of Mataro, Grenache and Shiraz. Discovering more old vine mataro and grenache in the 'gardens' of Tim Smith’s Barossa growers, provides him the perfect opportunity to craft a blend that is quite aromatic and in the 'Rhone Style' that he loves.
Retaining all the plush palate weight is the hallmark of the 2019 Tim Smith Mataro Grenache Shiraz, which is always purposefully mataro dominant. This allows the mataro fruit, which has a similar tannin structure as shiraz, to be ready to drink upon release as well as having some serious cellaring potential. A Barossa red wine with an enormous amount of charm.
"A slight twist on the classic ‘GSM’ blend-where Mataro AKA Mourvedre is the dominant variety. When fashioned in this style, we’re not only ripping off the classic Southern Rhone Provence style of wine, we’re also crafting a wine that has structure, persistence, and ageing capacity. If you’re patient enough." - Tim Smith Wines.
