Bull’s Blood Shiraz Mataro Pressings
Current Vintage: 2013
A wine with a long history in Hungary dating back to a famous battle in the 1500s, the Binder family has been producing Bull’s Blood for almost 50 years.
Unlike the Hungarian ‘Bikaver’, the family blend comprises of two great Barossa varieties, Shiraz and Mataro. To give more intensity and complexity to the wine, it’s made using only the Mataro pressings taken from the estate’s century old Mataro bush vines, and blended with estate grown premium Shiraz.
Intense flavours and aromas of spicy, juicy fruit, with hints of chocolate & earthy characters are prevalent in this powerful wine. Certainly one to enjoy now with a long, slow braise of lamb or beef.
The 2013 is an exceptional release of this cult classic. Drinking beautifully now, you can also be rewarded by cellaring this wine for 5-15 years.
