Rouleur Shiraz 2017 - McLaren Vale, South Australia


The Story

Matt East grew up in the Yarra Valley, as a son of a grape grower, so he knows both the wine industry and the Yarra Valley extensively. We first met Matt at a wine trade tasting when he was State Manager for Wirra Wirra winery in McLaren Vale, before he headed out to his own label Rouluer in 2015.

Matt’s approach to his own production now is refreshing and uncomplicated. He believes in ‘not messing with the natural order’ of winemaking in keeping the winemaker inputs and additions to a minimum. The name Rouleur is a cycling term, which Matt is also passionate about, meaning a ‘consistent all-rounder’.

M+Q Notes

This Shiraz is a blend of two different vineyards with 50+ year old vines in Blewitt Springs, which is a cooler climate region of McLaren Vale. There’s aromas of violets, savoury spice and black cherry on the nose and flavours of blueberry, plums and cedar on the palate. The tannins are fine grained and it’s made in a style that’s approachable when young.

Food Suggestion
