Matua Wines

Classification

Produced only in exceptional years from the most select fruit, this premium series is Matua Valley`s pride and joy. Numerous national and international awards are testament to the winery`s reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines - wines that are sought after by connoisseurs and collectors all over the world.

Elegant and distinctive, Ararimu wines will be further enhanced with cellaring. Medium density bright red in colour, the nose opens up to an array of aromas including blackberries, liquorice, plums and all spice, with a subtle draping of fine French oak. The palate, like the aroma, is a complex mix of primary fruits that don`t dominate, but meld into the very fine and persistent tannins, resulting in a sweet and dry lingering finish. Serve at 16-17 Celsius.

Excellent when paired with grilled steak or barbequed venison sausages. Cooler regions produce lighter styles, sometimes with a touch of herbaceous or eucalyptus characters, these wines go well with sauced red meat dishes, vegetable stews & many cheeses.
