2021 Mataro, Barossa, South Australia

The March Hare knows quality fruit when making a mad dash for Mataro



Dandelion Vineyards March Hare of the Barossa is a wine from Tam and Jessie Auricht’s vineyard near Marananga, Barossa, ideal for Mataro or Mourvedre as it is also known. The March Hare Vineyard is also ideal at attracting wildlife, including hares who from the first colour in the grapes madly attack the fruit from March onwards and from all directions.

Selected bunches were hand picked by family and friends in the last week of March and gently crushed into open top fermenters. After 14 days fermentation the wine was then basket-pressed into older French oak barriques for 20 months maturation and then bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vineyard and will reward cellaring and decanting.
