Winemaking: Organic Grenache Noir & Mouvèdre grapes from 70 year old vines were harvested by hand and underwent fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged in old barrels and amphora vessels for 6 months. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur

This Wine: Medium bodied red that is graceful and delicate. Complex dark fruit flavours with a beautiful texture make this a bottle to take your time over. Very small production. 

Notes on the Winemaker: Mataburro is the project of natural winemakers Laurent Roger and Melissa Ingrand in Rivesaltes which isn't far from Perpignan in the Pyrénées-Orientales region of Southern France. They make wines with amazing freshness considering the warm Mediterranean climate. Mataburro means Donkey Killer which refers to a railway that runs through the vineyard. When it opened in 1910, a train sadly killed 2 donkeys on the first day.
