75/25% split with the grenache coming off dry-grown bushvines planted in the 1930s, 50% whole bunches in the ferment with wild yeast and no new oak. The result is an immediately drinkable spicy, savoury and pleasing red. Tannins are so soft and supple bolstered by some pomegranate tang and acidity.

This wine has been produced using traditional techniques of open fermentation and basket pressing. Hand picked fruit was carefully selected from the 1930s planted dry grown grenache bush vines and fermented naturally on skins in picking bins. Gentle hand plunging of the individual ferments and minimal working has produced a vibrant wine with brooding, spicy fruit concentration and supple velvet tannins. Basket pressed, the wine was matured both in tank and in a percentage of French oak and mainly 2 & 3 year old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature. 2016 5452 grenache mataro is 60% grenache and 40% mataro.
