Torbreck Kyloe Mataro has fast established itself as one of Australia’s leading examples of Mataro, and is re-defining the way many (ourselves included) think about this widely planted variety. Having recently tasted this among a line-up of Torbreck premium reds; Kyloe Mataro stood out with its lifted perfumed aromas, gentle approachability and impressive depth of flavour.
The 2018 Torbreck Kyloe Mataro offers beautiful aromas of dense wild blackberries, lavender, black olive and cured meats, which are enhanced with a complex array of leather, clove and wild game characters. At the heart of this wine is a soft plump cherry fruit core with a freshness and vivacity that gives the wine focus, line and purity. While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the Kyloe Mataro will likely develop into an even more impressive Barossa red wine with a few more years in the cellar.
David Powell established the iconic Torbreck in 1994 by offering to nurse back to health a number of neglected old vines he had found when he was working for Rockford.
This share-crop arrangement allowed Powell to make his first wine under the Torbreck label which was named after a forest in Scotland where he had worked as a lumberjack. The Torbreck wines are based on the classic Barossa varieties of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and also small quantities of Roussanne, Marsanne & Viognier.
Torbreck has an enviable collection of growers around the Barossa & Eden Valleys with vines aged from 10 years old (which would go into Woodcutters Shiraz) to 160 years old (The Run Rig). The house style at Torbreck is a seamless balance of richness and finesse, the wines are always fresh and vibrant with underlying power and drive.
These are world class red wines and a benchmark for the Barossa Valley.
