Songs From Mars - The Other Kurock 2020
Region: Barossa Valley
Hello! It’s definitely Aglianico…. Bold and masculine. ferocious and grippy tannins. Herby and savoury. Moroccan spices. Get your lamb roast ready!
Organic Aglianico from Amadio Vineyard in Kersbrook (Barossa Valley). Long ferment, hand plunged two times daily. 8 months elevage in seasoned French oak. Minimum SO2 at bottling was the only addition.
New 2020 release from Californian Winemaker Matthew Rorick, whom since 2017 has been travelling to the Barossa to craft small batches of interesting wines from interesting fruit, sourced from both Barossa and the surrounding area.
Matthew's love for unloved and obscure varieties, combined with his stripped-back, bare-knuckle winemaking style have seen his small batches develop a feverish cult following in the US of A. His expertise and intuition make for a refreshing take on the characteristic styles of Barossa and the Hills.
