Matassa Olla Rouge
Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, 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.
Olla Rouge is a bright and fragrant blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah and Macabeu from 60-80 year old vines. Bottled without fining, filtration or sulphur, it's bursting with crunchy raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, violets and thyme.
