Toni Paterson MW - The Real Review

Dark cherry fruit with accents of liquorice and clove. Fleshy and bright is the palate with extraordinary intensity. The fruit is velvety and plush, and is centred on the mid-palate. Ripe integrated tannins help define the palate and the palate finishes with pleasing savouriness

Huon Hooke - The Real Review

Deep purple/red colour, with a quite herbal aroma, which is lightly floral also; young and fruit-driven, with a trace of reduction. The tannins are very firm and grippy, the wine is full-bodied and bold, with good concentration and depth of flavour. A rich, fruit-sweet core and a cleansing tannin finish. Excellent.

Winemakers Note

At Gemtree we farm our estate vineyards organically and biodynamically. This philosophy rewards us with fruit full of flavour and purity; these are the gems from which we craft our fine wines.

The handmade, small batch wines from Gemtree seek to disrupt. Experimental batches made from small parcels of organic and biodynamic fruit. These wines are an expression of the joy and curiosity of winemaking, free from convention, free from restraints. Only 2000 bottles made.

Our rare Mataro is deep and concentrated with aromas of forest floor, blackberry and thyme. It is an amazing wine with true presence and vibrancy. Rich, juicy, textural and earthy with delicately balanced acidity.

Pair with ragout.
