"So. Mataro. Fruit is sourced from a Krondorf site, predominately, from a vineyard where cuttings came from Abel Gibson’s father’s vineyard. The foothills vineyard where cool air whips through at night; Gibson often mentions this site. Twelve year old bush vines. A bit of fruit comes from Vine Vale off Wayne Ahrens old vine mataro block. ‘I love bitterness, Campari, amaro; I felt the 2012 was very strong in this character, and decided to leave the fruit till the next fruit day cycle to avert the baseline of this, to get the wine slinkier and fuller… whole bunch is done by eye to a measure in the ferment’, explains Gibson.
Even in ‘brevity’ of tasting with winemaker, Efferus opens up in the glass in volume. Luscious perfume, full of wild fruit and savouriness, earthy depth, undergrowth and guttural dark stone and berry fruit characters. Juicy in texture, light to medium bodied but without lack of flavour, showing with garrigue-tinged tannins tightening the wash of fruit in the wine, and finishing it with a stony pucker. A mouthwatering sweetness lingers, fresh acidity lifts the wine. Though delicate, there’s presence and persistence here. This is the best Efferus so far." 94pts MIKE BENNIE, www.winefront.com.au
