Matassa Mambo Sun

Matassa Mambo Sun


Country: France

Region: Roussillon

Grapes: Macabeu, Grenache

Vintage: 2020

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.

A blend of Grenache and Macabeu grapes. A juicy and fruity number that crosses the lines of light red, rosé and skin-contact wines in an artful and delicious way. Hard candy notes and bright red fruits with subtle lifting acidity. Slightly chilled is the best way to serve this wine.
