Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Sparkling Mataró starts out in your glass with a brilliant garnet color. The delicate bubbles elevate the aromas which consist of high-toned red fruit and, as our owner described to me, red gooseberries (I had to go buy some and try them myself just to be sure!). The palate is all raspberry puree and it finishes bright and clean with a surprising balance considering this wine has zero dosage and is completely dry. I am envisioning pairing this with everything from grilled pizza with prosciutto and fig to dessert of cheesecake with raspberry coulis.
Winemaker Notes
This is our second bottling of Sparkling Mataró, and at 42 cases, it is quite small! To create this wine, we broke from our normal traditions of making sparkling and used a slightly different method to create the base wine. We picked Mourvedre grapes for our still wine, destemmed them and crushed them at 50%. After 24 hours on the skins, we “Saignéed” 20% from the grapes and used that to make our sparkling Mataró! It went into two neutral oak barrels to go through primary fermentation and then was moved to stainless steel for a small amount of aging time. It then was tirage bottled and left to ferment again and age for over one year. After that, we disgorged it and left it natural without dosage added.
