Mazi Mataro Cinsault Grenache Rose 2021
The 2021 Mataro Cinsault Grenache Rose is another debutant under the Mazi rose banner. Fruit from these three varieties were all hand picked on the same day, crushed and juice drained off before being co-fermented in a stainless steel vat.
Following a cool fermentation of the free run juice, a barrel fermented portion of the pressings was blended in to add palate weight and texture to the final wine. It was bottled with minimal inputs to retain all the key attributes of the fruit grown in the vineyard. Fruit, perfume and texture. The resulting wine has a lovely floral scent as well as musk and Turkish delight. The palate is full yet balanced with natural acid, fine chalky tannin and carried by natural red berry and cherry flavour.
The final wine displays a complex layer of white peach, musk, almond meal and mild pimento brought into line by natural acidity, grape skin and fine oak tannin.
