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. Only 10.5% ABV.
This Brutal Rouge is a bright, juicy and vibrant red, just bursting with flavors of red berries, with undertones of herbs and spices. It's a captivating wine, with plenty of natural acidity.
