Region: Roussillon

Grapes: Mourvèdre

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.

One of our favourite bottlings from Matassa, Ace of Spades is a warming, autumnal wine with a blackcurrant & truffly complexity that goes beautifully with root vegetables and game.
