Sieber SMM Shiraz Montepulciano Mataro 2019
- Textured, savoury
- Barossa Valley
Sieber, oh how we’ve missed you! It’s been a while since we’ve had the pleasure of offering this mofo fave (try 8 years). We couldn’t get enough of their shiraz back in the day, and we’re even more pumped about this one. The blend of shiraz, montepulciano and mataro is a match made in heaven. The trio comes together with ease, hitting all the sweet spots of cherries, chocolate, black olive and spice that you want from a full-bodied Barossa red. Just like the life of the party, this wine is generous, hearty in character and a genuine delight to have around. All we have to say is: welcome home old friend.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
