ABOUT THE WINE: Matsu represents a journey through time, through several generations dedicated to life on the land. Youth, maturity and old age. La Jefa is the charisma of daring surprise. There are very few plots where the white grape predominates in the DO Toro, that is why La Jefa comes from a selection of a multitude white vines that are found alternately in old red grape vineyards (from 50 to 150 years old). The vines settle on sandy soils with a high granite stony component and are cultivated naturally as the tradition of Toro says. 14 months in new 600 l French oak “bocoyes” (big barrels), lightly toasted.
TASTING NOTES: Highly complex, notes of vanilla and ripe stone fruits stand out, accompanied by creamy notes. It is complemented with slight aniseed nuances, to reflect a nose harmonized by its aging in casks, sweet character and with a great diversity of nuances. A mouth-filling, silky wine, great creaminess and very pleasant. But at the same time with good acidity, resulting in a very balanced and elegant wine. Very pleasant on the palate, where sweet nuances and fine texture stand out, increasing its complexity and richness.
