Caillard Pinxit Mataro Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
This very limited release is the result of an unexpected accident in the cellar, where five barrels of Mataro were topped up with a barrel of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Inspired by a book that winemaker Andrew Caillard was writing, the wine was kept in barrel for over two years in the 'Reserva' tradition resulting in a very different, but exciting style.
"Fragrant and lithe in structure with attractive bright crimson colours, cranberry, redcurrant herb garden, star anise aromas, supple textures, underlying roasted nut complexity, mid-palate inkiness and persistent mineral freshness." Andrew Caillard MW, Winemaker
