Hither & Yon 2015 Grenache Mataro

I love the lip-smackingly drinkable fruit-driven reds that are produced by Hither & Yon in McLaren Vale - and I also enjoy the dramatic and artistic colour-coded labels from Estonian artist Eiko Ojala. This is a fabulously accessible blend of 60% grenache and 40% mataro – the ripe, sweet grenache fruit melding with the earthy funkiness of the mataro to produce a beautifully balanced red that is designed for immediate enjoyment. No need to cellar this one; just put some gourmet sausages on the barbecue and you have a wine/food match made in heaven. $24.
