Matassa 'Mambo Sun' Rouge 2020
Varietal: 30% Macabeu 70% Grenache
Color: Light Red
Notes: In 2001 New Zealanders Sam Harrop and Tom Lubbe purchased a small vineyard high up in the hills of the Coteaux du Fenouillèdes, in the Roussillon region of France, called Clos Matassa. Vineyard management here employs biodynamics, and the winemaking here is aiming to be as natural as possible. The only addition is a bit of sulfur dioxide, and handling is gentle. 'Mambo Sun' is a very light red made by co-fermenting all varietals in whole clusters, pressing after just 5 days, and then aging in concrete.
