Bodegas Marta Maté
12 bottle case
Made from 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes, hand-harvested from a special plot of ~25 year old vines called “El holgazán” (the layabout). The vineyard is planted at ~900 metres on clay/limestone soils.
The juice is kept on the skins for about 8 days, then after fermentation is complete (using indigenous yeasts) the wine is aged for ~7 months in 300L French oak barrels and then 6 months in concrete tanks. Approximately 25,500 bottles produced.
Our Tasting Note: Deep cherry, with purple tinges. Intense aromas and flavours of red and black fruits - cherry, blackberry, raspberry - with notes of liquorice, toffee, and vanilla spice. Medium-bodied, with pleasing tannins and a long fresh/sweet finish. 14% alc./vol. RS 1.45 gr./L.
Pairing suggestions: A wine for food, and works well with meat dishes (grilled), tapas (Iberian ham), and rice dishes with poultry, or even seafood.
