Michelle says: "A newby from Temple Bruer the TB 621 MSG (Mataro, Shiraz, Grenache) is an absolute cracker. As the name suggests this is packed full of flavour, but unlike the other 621 MSG it’s all natural!
It’s all raspberry lollies, liquorice, leather, fennel seeds, white pepper and smokiness. Five stars for drinkability...my favourite Preservative free red right at the moment, and like many Temple Bruer wines, it ticks all the boxes; organic, preservative free, vegan friendly and well made from quality fruit."
Slow and extended ripening of the in Loxton and Eden Valley vineyards lead to exceptional fruit flavour in the parcels that created this wine. Langhorne creek was also consistent with seasonal conditions for the best Grenache from previous vintage experience. Medium red with purple hue with aromas of Spice, Cherry, white pepper and dried herbs. Bright fruit flavours with fullness across the palate towards a medium length finish.
2014 Mataro Shiraz Grenache
LOXTON, EDEN VALLEY & LANGHORNE CREEK VINEYARD
The 2014 vintage was moderate in climate with consistent and warm ripening days. Slow and extended ripening of the in Loxton and Eden Valley vineyards lead to exceptional fruit flavour in these parcels. Langhorne creek was also consistent with seasonal conditions for the best Grenache from previous vintage experience.
Each parcel was made separately to showcase the fruit individually from each region before blending the final wine. Hand-picked Mataro was crushed and underwent a cool to moderate fermentation temperature with short pump-overs four times per day. Shiraz was harvested in two parcels, some hand-picked, and underwent a cool fermentation with hand pump-overs twice per day, pressing after the completion of fermentation. Grenache was machine harvested, crushed and underwent a cool to moderate fermentation with two pump-overs per day, early pressing before the completion of fermentation.
