Behind the historic farm house, now home to Shingleback’s Tasting Room, in what used to be the old kitchen garden a small Mataro (Mourvédre) vineyard stands.
Today the restaurant kitchen produces fine local fare, enhancing our wines and welcoming visitors to “the Vale”.
Deep red. Brooding primary aromas of bramble and mulberry are enhanced with notes of earthy chocolate and spice. The generous palate overflows with rich blackberry flavours, balanced by a natural acidity. Moreish chewy and savoury tannins complete this medium to full bodied Mataro.

Machine-harvested, destemmed, 9 days on skins, matured for 12 months in used oak. The vintage waved its wand over this usually morose variety; cherry fruit and spice, dark chocolate and earth. Special Value.
This is a sophisticated mataro, devoid of the rusticity this variety sometimes brings with it. The attractive aromas tend towards mulberry, while the palate is rich and long, balanced by savoury tannins.
Spicy berry, currant and chocolatey aromas lead the way here, with some earthy regional notes in the background. The palate is savoury and tight, medium in body and finely balanced with drying tannins and a long finish. Another positive argument for straight varietal mataro.
Soft seductive style with beetroot-like intensity to the nose and a floral lift. Generous spicy plum flavours, good oak integration and fine tannins.
