John Duval Wines 2018 Annexus Mataro (Barossa Valley)

Duval's Annexus wines are different each year, neatly showcasing the natural vintage variation of the region he knows so intimately. The 2018 unravels like a ball of twine, first with earthy, green herbal notes, then licorice and cherry cola, then black currant and a slightly metallic, sanguine nuance, like a slab of raw steak on a steel cutting board. There's tang and freshness to the palate with makes it feel less dense even while wound in muscular tannins. A Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) of precision and finesse that walks a tightrope of elegance and power. Drink now with said steak until 2030. Christina Pickard
