Matassa Tattouine Rouge 2020


Matassa is another Languedoc/Roussillon project by kiwi-born Tom Lubbe, who actually spent his formative winemaking years in South Africa. He paved the way for people like Craig Hawkins of Testalonga to create a scene in South Africa, but it wasn’t until he moved to France that he really forged his own path. The wines are all very mineral-driven, and as the vineyards have evolved and become healthier due to his diligent care, he has used less and less sulfur every year, these days about 10ppm. The reds are lively and energetic, and the whites/oranges are textural and exotic.

A very slick white/red blend that would quench the thirst even if there were two suns. Very special stuff, definitely chill it before you spill it, crunchy acid and texture, little grip but fresh as.
