The Bin 2 blend of shiraz and mataro is still relatively uncommon in Australian table wines. Also known as monastrell or mourvèdre, mataro was introduced to Australia in the 1830s. Often used in fortified wine production, this grape is widely planted in the Barossa Valley. It is valued by winemakers for its blending attributes, adding complexity and palate grip. Interest in Bin 2 has grown as the popularity of traditional Rhône varieties and blends continues to flourish.

The wine has a cerise core with a crimson rim. On the nose, aromatics are dominated by brightly lifted red fruits of cranberry, red currants and rhubarb. Scents of freshly sliced cured meats and black olive tapenade provide a savoury nuance. Underlying spice is derived from oak maturation, evoking sumac and cardamom. The enticing aromatics are amplified on the palate. Loose-knit and lacy tannins provide structural foundations, with juicy red fruit acidity giving rise to a balanced medium-bodied wine. Further complex savoury characters of roasted celeriac and fresh vegetable consommé create another level of complexity.
