Single Bottle, Box of 6
Ultimate Spanish Wine Gift
El Viejo is the top wine available in the Matsu Family Collection.
It is an opulent and elegant wine made from 100% Tinto de Toro, also know as Tempranillo, from very old vines. The older the vine, the more intense the flavour potential is. The grapes come from ancient vineyards planted on very low production soils of sandstone and clay at about 650-700m altitude.
It spends 16 months in new oak made from vines which are over 100 years old. These are vines planted around the time of World War 1.
A very serious an intense wine layered with flavours of dark fruit, smoke, spice and herbs. It tastes similar enough to a very full bodied Bordeaux, and we would definitely recommend opening in the morning so it has plenty of time to open up. Hugely intense and very refined.
