Characteristics of Matsu El Viejo

Matsu is a red wine from Toro produced by the Matsu winery. The winery is located in the region of Toro (Zamora) and is owned by Vintae group.

Matsu El Viejo is 100% made from Tinta de Toro. The grapes come from ancient vineyards planted on very low production soils of sandstone and clay at about 650-700m altitude.

The cultivation of the vineyard seeks not to interfere with the natural processes of the vineyard, using biodynamic farming methods.  

For processing, the wine is fermented and macerated for three weeks in concrete tanks of 10,000kg. Afterwards malolactic fermentation occurs in new French oak barrels. In the same barrels, the wine is aged for 16 months.

Matsu is Japanese for "hope". The wines from the Matsu collection are the result of waiting, waiting for nature to fulfil its cycles without forcing it, and waiting for the wine to develop its qualities spontaneously.

Alcohol: 15.0%

Taste Powerful, large and fleshy entry. Sweet and fruity with nice toasted touches. Ripe and round tannins. Good acidity. Long finish.
Sight Deep cherry red with a violet rim. Clean and bright. Dense tears stain the glass. Nose Deep and complex aromas. Ripe red fruit appears against a mineral background, very well combined with toasted and smoky notes. Balsamic notes soften and refresh the palate. Soft spices complement an intense and expressive nose. Taste This red wine has a broad and powerful attack. It is long, tasty and engulfing on the palate, with a high concentration of fruit and refreshing balsamic nuances. Fantastic acidity, very well integrated and defined. Ripe, fleshy and sweet tannins give this wine a fine and velvety texture. A long and very persistent finish with a nice spicy aftertaste.
Sight Deep purple-cherry colour with violet edges. Clean and bright. Its dense tears stain the glass. Nose Deep and complex aromas among which the notes of ripe red fruit stand out on an important mineral background. The fruit is very well integrated with some toasted and smoked notes. Its balsamic notes soften and refresh its high powerness and its soft spicy notes complete its intense and expressive nasal aromas. Taste It is a Spanish wine with a wide and powerful attack and a long and tasty mid palate. It coats the palate with concentrated notes of fruit and balsamic sensations which refresh its mid palate.
