Schwartz 2012 Meta Mataro: Tasting Note

The new Meta range from Schwarz Wine Co includes a Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache.  Meta being defined an abstraction from a well known concept.

Continuing on with this abstraction idea, the Schwartz Meta Mataro displays all you would expect from Mataro.

Lots of dark berries, a bit of earthy funk and some warm spices on the nose. On the palate nice and bright, fresh and juicy. Morelo cherries, dark plums and some stewed rhubarb.

This was actually enjoyed with char-grilled ratatouille, where the smokey charred vegetables balanced with the earthiness and spice. The acid in the dish balanced with the freshness of the wine. But any tomato based dish would work.
