Keith Brien Old Vines Mataro CONFIRM VINTAGE

Mourvedre Goulburn Victoria
Vincenzo Conte immigrated to Australia in 1952, sowing Shiraz and Mataro vines on a property just outside of Shepparton. His son took over management of the precious low yielding vineyard until 2003, when the site came to the attention of a seasoned old salt with a deep penchant for small batch, Rhone varietal wines. Keith Brien makes old world styles, with a view to bottle development of each vintage before release. The powerful mouthfilling richness and velvet textures are complemented by a length of deep, fine tannins, the fruit of cosseted, unirrigated old vines.

Keith Brien has been a winemaker for decades, establishing his own label under the Silver Wings moniker. Brien continues to pursue his passion for making long lived, superior vineyard wines, he is consumed by his love for the old vine styles of Valley Rhone, Shiraz, Mourverdre and Grenache, assembling the noble trio into exquisite wines of rich, spicy rich flavours supported by deep and delicious, tannic complexities. Mataro is harvested off the Vincenzo Conte block in Shepparton and treated to macerations for maximal extract of colour, flavour and tannin. The ferments are transferred to a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic and extended maturation.
Deep garnet red. Violets and bramble are supported by a seasoning of gamey spice notes, milled peppercorn and clove. A fragrant red cherry palate, underpinned by layers of savoury fruit characters, black olive, leather and thyme. An earthy, pastoral style on a framework of firm, sleek tannins and supple, disciplined cinnamon oak, the perfect accompaniement to a length of flame grilled, wild boar snags.
