Rouleur 'Whole Bunch' Mataro
Free shipping over 750 HKD
Mataro is a dark horse. And we love a dark horse. Particularly in a fixed race. Mataro is often blended away (think GSM wines) and doesn't get to see the bottle as a standalone. Decent Mataro takes patience in the vineyard, and precision in the winery. And a go-getter attitude. Rouleur nailed all three here. A juicy wine, dark fruits shining through. Medium-bodied. The 'whole bunch' creates a bit of stemmy vibe, without it being too much. I like it - all positive. Really drinkable.
Calling all you high rollers. Allow us to introduce one man band Matt East. He grew up in the Yarra Valley, tinkering with his own wine from a young age, dad growing grapes in the back yard. The Rouleur philosophy is tending to pick on the earlier side for a freshness that knocks your socks off without sacrificing flavour. Matt’s rolling/rouleur journey in wine took him from national sales manager for Wirra Wirra to now getting his handy dirty, (cue suit in the bin. Sales script ripped apart. KPIs and spreadsheets deleted.). Rouleur is a tilt of the hat to his dad - lost but not forgotten - and a nod to the road less traveled.
