About This Wine

Mataro/Shiraz. As always, Indigene is based on the Barossa's wonderful resource of old-vine Mataro (aka Mourvèdre), sourced from tiny pockets of vines on the region's eastern fringes. The Mataro component this year comes from two sites with deep sand soils in Vine Vale and Ebenezer. The vines range from 20 to 90 years old, with an impressively high average of 70 years. The Shiraz was drawn from four vineyards across the Barossa Valley, with vines again averaging 70 years of age (ranging from 20 to 110 years), and having soils that comprise of quartz shot clays and silty, sandy soils. The elevation for these sites was between 230 and 420 m.a.s.l. Each variety is treated separately; the Mataro foot-crushed and raised in large format oak to preserve its subtle aromatics. The Shiraz raised in mature barrique and a single 600 litre demi-muid. The final blend is bottled without fining or filtration. 30% whole bunches. "Deep, complex and masculine aromatics. Higher-toned, dried dark cherry, blueberry, violet laced blackberry fruits, fresh bay leaf and pickled walnut rise over a darker core of suede, Indian ink, hardwoods, Brazil nut, coffee and boudin noir. Intense and concentrated, yet not expansive. Dark, savoury and saline elements find balance against fleshy, elemental fruit. Initially subjugated by the unresolved core of red and black fruits, stony acids and fine sandy tannins build to drive the finish, fresh and firm. The restrained complexity of old vineyards and the generosity given by the Barossa's ancient soils are both evident in equal measure." Pete Schell, winemaker
