Reviews of 2021 Mataro:

90 Points, Marcus Ellis, Halliday Wine Companion, February 2024:
"Deep and darkly hewn with panforte, mixed spice, bitter wild herbs, blackberry, dried orange peel, anise and some dry-toned spice notes of long-ish oak ageing (21 months in older oak). It’s not a big wine in terms of richness or viscosity, but it’s an impactful mouthful, craggy, herbal, a bit rustic of feel. It’s no easy crowd-pleaser, but it is a savoury wine of character and detail.”

"Often seen alongside Shiraz and Grenache, Mataro (aka Monastrell/Mourvèdre) can be quite delightful by itself. While often leaning towards the dark spectrum, I found this Mataro to be very red-fruited, with high-toned characters of raspberry, mulberry, strawberry, a touch of black cherry, and some black pepper. It was both ultra-ripe while also having a high amount of acidity, which can be tamed when pairing with something spicy or richly flavoured."
