A deep cherry colour, with violet coloured notes in its border. Thanks to the barrel aging the wine has acquired a very intense nose with mature black fruit aromas, well integrated with the toasted, spiced and smoked notes. Corpulent in the mouth with very mature and round tannins that give the wine sweetness. The finish is long and persistent with the mature fruit perfectly balanced with the roasted character of the wood.
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.
