Characteristics of Matsu El Pícaro

El Pícaro is a young red wine from Toro made with Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes from vines between 50 and 70 years old.

This wine is produced by Bodega Matsu and is a wine that does not interfere with natural processes, guided by biodynamic viticulture methods.

For its preparation, the harvest is done manually during the first half of October and is transported in boxes and small trailers.

Subsequently, fermentation takes place in concrete tanks of 15,000 kg, the temperature does not exceed 24ºC to maintain freshness in the fruit that characterizes this wine.

Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels, once complete, it is neither filtered nor clarified, trying to preserve its natural features.

Finally El Pícaro spends three months in wooden barrels.

Serve at 15ºC
Contains sulphites
Pairing

Tasting notes Matsu El Pícaro

Matsu El Pícaro 2017 is a fruity and linear wine. This vintage is distinguished by a greater concentration due to the lack of rain. A wine to enjoy in its youth thanks to its explosion of fruit.
This is an excellent vintage in D.O. Toro. With a somewhat particular autumn due to scarce rainfall and slightly higher than normal temperatures. It wasn’t until early January that the rainfall went back to normal.From February to March, temperatures and rainfall were normal, so the water reserves and the growth cycle began correctly.Budding and flowering were delayed for a few days due to low temperatures in May.The high temperatures start at the end of June, boosting the flowering and growth process.The summer went by without any major weather events until mid-September, when light rains and a drop in temperatures led to a slower ripening until the start of the harvest, which arrived with an optimum degree of ripeness.The wines of this vintage present a great balance between ripeness and acidity. Wines fresh in their youth and prepared to age perfectly.
This year, which was described as a very good one, started with high temperatures that did not lower until the end of November. There were also quite low water reserves. In the early spring, temperatures began to rise, leading to the first bleedings of the vines. The beginning of the growth cycle did not present any major upheavals, except for the low humidity due to the lack of rain during the winter. During May, the vines began to develop their buds, causing the flowering during the first week of June. When they started to ripen, the drought and the stress on the vines was evident. At the end of August, there a certain amount of rain helped to hydrate the bunches, which helped to collect the healthiest grapes.As a result, we have a year with wines of a concentrated profile and some acidity. Perfect in their youth and with a medium ageing capacity.
Sight Purplish colour and high robe which shows its youth. Nose Intense aroma of black fruits like blackberries and blueberries prevailing over red fruits. Mineral notes are also noticed, thus creating a fresh but complex wine. Taste Fruity sensations, structured and glossy.

    Production area D.O. Toro

    Winery Matsu

    In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.

    In Japanese, Matsu means ‘to wait’. A concept that perfectly defines the philosophy of the winery: to wait for the grapes to ripen, to wait for nature to do its work, for the wine to mark the pace.
    Using century-old vines, between 80 and 100 years old, planted on very poor soils, cultivated according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, and with the minimum possible intervention, the Matsu winery produces powerful wines, with personality, but providing a softness and elegance unusual in Toro wines.
