Matsu el Viejo 2020 - Magnum 1.5L

El Viejo has a deep cherry color with violet tones in the rim. Thanks to the barrel aging applied, the wine has a very intense nose with aromas of ripe black fruit, well integrated with toasted, spiced and smoky notes. Thick and full in the mouth with very ripe and round tannins that give it its sweet softness. In the long and persistent finish, again ripe fruits appear, perfectly composed with the toasted character of the wood.
El Viejo is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). The grapes come from a strictly selected, centuries-old vineyard with very limited production. The grapes are harvested manually during the first fifteen days of October and transported to the wineries in small crates. Grape fermentation takes place in concrete vats with a capacity of 10,000 kg. Malolatic fermentation is carried out in new French oak barrels, as is aging for 16 months. This wine is not filtered or clarified using aggressive methods to preserve its natural characteristics.
  • About the Winery

    Driven by the desire to make wine without haste, Raul Acha searched for the best vineyard in the Toro area. Matsu, which means "patient balance" in Japanese, perfectly describes the essence of this project. Matsu is inspired by the Japanese tradition of nurturing nature, purity, simplicity and the absence of artificial intervention.

    It pays homage to the Spanish wine tradition. All wines are made from grapes grown in a completely natural environment. The Matsu trilogy of wines represents three generations of winemakers. More than a winery or a wine, Matsu is a modern project of high quality winemaking that produces exclusive wines. Matsu refers to the connection between the Eastern drive for perfection and the most advanced biodynamic techniques of the Western world, with which the winemakers created this ecological wine. Matsu represents the essence of a natural wine, without any use of synthetic or chemical products.
