Matassa Cuvée Alexandria


Country: France

Region: Roussillon

Grapes: Muscat d'Alexandrie

Vintage: 2022

Tom Lubbe of Matassa is originally from New Zealand, winemaking first in South Africa and then at Domaine Gauby in Roussillon before starting Matassa in 2003.  Most of the vineyards are 60-120 years old, co-planted planted with different varieties on schist and marl. All the vineyards are worked naturally without herbicides or pesticides.

Cuvée Alexandria is Muscat d'Alexandria from 80 year old vines, fermented in whole bunches in old oak foudre before a further 8 months ageing. An exotically perfumed orange wine with floral aromas of jasmine, chamomile and orange blossom. Spicy and textured on the palate with plenty of old vine depth.
