MATARO SHIRAZ GRENACHE

2017

The three great Barossa red varietals are Mataro, Shiraz and Grenache.

Blended well they produce wine full of fruit, complexity, spice, drink-ability and age-ability.

These varieties aren’t afraid of the sun and dry climates, so they thrive in the northern sub-regions of the Barossa.

The grapes for this wine are a combination of youngish, mature and older vines, all grown by the Hoffmann family.

The Hoffman and O’Callaghan family's history of growing grapes and making wines has developed into a strong trust over the decades.

It’s this long-term commitment, respect for each other, the region, and its people I feel is instrumental to making the Barossa proudly stand out from other wine regions.

I’m truly thankful to the Hoffman family for giving me the privilege of turning generations of their blood, sweat and tears into wine, that makes me proud, and you will love.
