Matassa Cuvée Marguerite
Grapes: Muscat, Macabeu
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.
Marguerite is Muscat in its truest form. A bottle that hits you with notes reminding you of Southeast Asian spices and flowers. Think jasmine, kefir lime and lemongrass mixed with heady orange blossoms. A wine that brightens any rainy day and feels refreshing in the heat of summer.
