Matarredonda Libranza 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Matarredonda was founded in 2000 by Alfonso Sanz Rojo, who bought eighteen hectares of prime old vineyard in a region that has seen a huge resurgence of interest in the last ten years. An impressively equipped, newly built winery allows the exceptional fruit quality of the vineyards to be delivered unblemished into the bottle. Toro is an appellation of two halves: the high plain produces hearty, rustic wine for local consumption, while the sand- and clay-rich vineyards below the town give a breathtaking combination of density and finesse. Matarredonda’s vines are in the latter zone, are between 45 and 120 years old, and are all ungrafted. The local clone of Tempranillo, Tinta de Toro, also contributes to the dynamic style of the wine, while the use of sheep droppings, matured for three years, avoids the need for artificial fertilizer. The best barrels of the estate are selected to give this brooding flagship: rich berry fruit and floral-spicy complexity match a structure of impressive scale and concentration.
