Domaine Matassa ‘Olla Rouge’ Vin de France 2018

Estate: New Zealand native Tom Lubbe founded Domaine Matassa in 2003. Located in the Roussillon in southern France, his 15 hectares of indigenous varietal vineyards are 60-120 years in age, with schist and marl soils. Tom practices low intervention farming using biodynamic and organic methods [certified organic]. For a closer look at Tom Lubbe’s winemaking background, visit his producer profile page at Louis/Dressner Selections.

Winemaking: Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, aged in stainless steel, no added sulphur, unfined and unfiltered. Vegan.

Tasting Notes: Transparent ruby red in colour, very aromatic; with violet, lavender, sandalwood cranberry, cherry, rose petal, forest floor, candied orange peel and clove. Black cherry, black currant, pomegranate, lavender and thyme are framed by tangy acidity and black tea tannins. Black currant and blood infuse the earthy mineral finish. Dynamic, elegant, silky.
