Andrew Graham reveals "More Bargains from Inkwell: the Dub Style No. 1 Mataro 2015

Dubsty Mataro no.1_black copy.jpg

Dudley and Irina are pumping out value bangers at Inkwell lately, and this single vineyard Mataro is on point. Oh and Mataro, from McLaren Vale? Not Mourvedre? Is this a thing now?

Purple red coloured and swimming with purple fruit. Generous and pulpy and just a little warm. But what breadth and stature! This really fills your mouth with black jube fruit, plus anise, fudge, coffee chocolate and late, drying tannins. All of the Mataro/Mourvedre/Monastrell/etc delights on display and with supreme intensity.

What a bargain!

Best drinking: 2016-2022. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14%, $25. Would I buy it? I reckon if I was in a BBQ mode and looking for juicy-but-not-simple-at-all reds Iā€™d grab this in a heartbeat. Cheap for what it is.
