Torbreck 2017 The Pict Mataro (Barossa Valley)

This Mataro (Mourvèdre) offers all of the charm and polish of Torbreck's fine red wines, with the price tag to go with it. The cooler 2017 vintage adds a lovely lift and elegance to this wine. Cherry cola and vanilla mingles with raspberry and black currant with a varietal character of dried herbs and spices there, too. Tannins are taut and sinewy, nicely juxtaposing the silky, juicy fruit. There's a good lick of high-end oak showing at the moment, but overall this is a precise, balanced wine to drink now with protein until 2030. Christina Pickard
