First Village

First Village Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2022

A classic blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, this wine has all the hallmarks of the style with a vibrant nose of dark fruits and spice complemented by pretty florals, a plush and succulent palate replete with fresh, pacy tannins that give a wine of great complexity and drinkability.


Sourced from Estate and neighbouring vineyards in the village this is a globally popular blend with a very Bethany feel. Parcels were kept separate and whole berry fermented with a variety of skin contact times (7-14 days) and twice daily pumpovers according to stage of fermentation. A small amount of whole bunches were used to add further complexity and aromatic interest. Maturation was for 9 months in seasoned oak as well as stainless steel.
