Gift Set includes:
Matassa Blanc Blossom 2021 (Muscat a Petit Grains)
Matassa Mambo Sun 2020 (Grenache Noir/Grenache Blanc/Grenache Gris/Macabeu)
Cult natural wine producer Domaine Matassa works with old vines of traditional Catalan varieties: Carignan, Grenache, Macabeu, Grenache Gris, Muscat d'Alexandrie and Muscat de Petits-Grains. Most are massal selection. These old vines are incredibly low-yielding and result in terroir-driven wines of intense concentration and focus - the likes of which rarely hail from the south of France. These indigenous grapes come from old vines, and vineyards are worked naturally, by hand. Matassa uses native yeasts and no additives of any kind, except for minimal sulfur at bottling. These are beautifully balanced subtle old-vine wines driven by acidity and crunchy fruit with outstanding concentration and focus.
Blossom is a single vineyard bottling of skin-contact old vine Muscat. The vineyard has cherry trees planted around it, hence the grapes grow near the blossoms. Organic farming, spontaneous fermentation with the native yeasts, no filtering or fining, and bottled without any sulfur.This is a stunning wine with a short period of skin contact resulting is a moderately tannic orange wine. Aromatic and bright yellow fruit notes with dried citrus peels.
Mambo Sun is composed of 30% Macabeu and 70% Grenache grapes of all three color variations (Noir, Gris, Blanc). All co-fermented as whole clusters avoiding extract, pressed after just 5 days and aged in concrete tanks. This wine is very pale in color and light in body, fresh and chillable.
These wines are both rarities among Matassa's cuvées, with extremely limited availability.
