Bringing the Best of Barossa Alive
Langdorf Kaldukee Barossa Valley Mataro 2011
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
We have a bit of the 'build it and they will come' view of wine at Glug. One of the centre pieces of the new Barossa which we and a few other are trying to build is to highlight the two traditional varieties of the Barossa, mataro and grenache. Blends of these two with shiraz have gathered pace and are often called GSM's or variants depending on which variety is dominant. We also want to have available a range of single varietals.
The grapes for this Kaldukee were sourced from a number of growers in the traditional part of the Barossa, and by this I mean along the floor of the Barossa, as distinct from the surrounding hills. Like all of our single varietal bottlings of mataro the quantity is small as we select the best and also because not a lot is grown.
