Usually the wine that speaks loudly of mataro and from vineyards around the Barossa. Gosh, Ruggabellus wines have such charisma.
Fresh and dark fruited, inky and potent yet lifts on game meat, clove and cinnamon spice. a blood orange juice slosh and light, herbal detail. Lots of perfume, a fog of dark berries, woody spices and fresh turned earth and undergrowth. Lovely stuff. Long in flavour, sappy and then a building rumble of silty tannins to conclude the wine with nutty, gamey characters lingering. Not a heavy wine, but one with lots of presence, savouriness and depth. Very good. - The Wine Front
