Matsu El Viejo 2011, now available on Decantalo

The first day of April, and the first big piece of news for wine lovers. One of Toro’s greatest wineries releases its new vintage: Nothing less than Matsu el Viejo 2011.

El Viejo 2011 is Bodega Matsu’s flagship wine, Grupo Vintae‘s successful project in the Designation of Origen Toro. This designation of Origen seems to have been touched by a magic wand in recent years, given the excellent wines they’ve been offering us.

Matsu el Viejo 2011 is a Tinta de Toro single-varietal, a native variety from this region, fermented and macerated in concrete deposits and aged in French oak barrels for 16 months.

This wine exhibits masterful balance between power and gentleness, concentration and silkiness. It’s easy to see how the previous vintage earned 94 Parker Points from Neil Martin, who defined this jewel as follows “…this is an undoubtedly sophisticated Toro red of which I’m sure the elderly gentleman on the label would approve”.

A deep, complex wine. A fine example of balance between fruit and wood. Broad and expressive, caressing the palate with a firm but velvety texture. Long and persistent. One glass of this wine is never enough.
