A fresh and exciting representation of Mataro. An enticing bouquet of wild forest berries flows into a seamless wine that coats the palate in joy with a savoury and silky finish.

Rustic, honest foods of the earth; a fine accompaniment to duck or quai

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2009) - 87 pts

Feb 2012 Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Mourvedre displays earthy notes of damp loam and moss covered tree bark over a core of warm blackberries and cassis with a hint of menthol. Full bodied with plenty of expressive black fruit and earthy flavors, it has an approachable backbone of medium level chewy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long. Drink this one now to 2015.


JancisRobinson.com (2009) - 15.5 pts

Tasted Feb 2013 - Very sweet and a hint of boiled bonbons on the end. Simple.


Wine Spectator (2009) - 89 pts

Web Only 2014 - Refreshingly open-textured, with dark, brooding cherry compote, tea leaf and smoke notes, lingering deftly.


James Halliday (2011) - 90 pts

Bright colour; meaty and dark on the bouquet, with anise, bramble and sea salt on display; the palate is sweet fruited at its core, with chewy tannins dominant and supported by bright acidity; fragrant and accessible for the variety.


Wine Front (2009) - 94 pts

This mourvedre from Turkey Flat spent 20 months in French oak puncheons.We have another winning mourvedre here. It’s dark berried and earthen, leathery and polished. Spicy, cedary oak makes a delicious contribution and its grainy, assertive, rusty tannin is a highlight. Lovely length. Medium-bodied but almost porty in its ripeness. Beautiful wine to drink even now though it can be cellared with confidence too.
