Matassa Brutal Blanc 2022
Matassa Brutal Rouge 2022
Tom Lubbe is crafting uniquely delicious natural wines under the Domaine Matassa label In the south of France. Fruit is hand-harvested. The vineyard is on Marl, a calcium-carbonate rich soil consisting of clay and silt. Fermentation is whole-cluster for about 4 days and the wine is pressed and racked into fiberglass for 7 months of aging. Both of these wines are just 10.5% ABV.
Brutal Blanc 2022 is a skin contact dry white made from 70 year-old Macabeu vines. Whole-cluster fermentation with 3 weeks of skin contact. This medium-bodied orange wine has intense aromas of stone fruits, herbs, and tea.
This Brutal Rouge 2022 (a blend of Syrah and Muscat a Petit Grains) is a bright, juicy and vibrant red, just bursting with flavors of red berries, with undertones of herbs and spices. A captivating wine, with plenty of natural acidity.
