92 Points Robert Parker
The 2006 Astral Series Mataro was sourced from a 60-year-old vineyard in the Roennfeldt region of Barossa. Purple-colored, it has a superb nose of cigar box, forest floor, violets, blackberry and licorice. This is followed by a layered, plush wine with great depth and complexity, succulent flavors, impeccable balance, and 5-7 years of aging potential. It will offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2030. There are only 10 cases for the USA market and it is a unique wine, but the price will make you scratch your head.
