Mather Teresina 2015

£42.75

Mather Teresina can age for more than two decades. The nearly extinct Morenillo grape is indigenous to the area and makes Mather Teresina a unique wine. Less than 500 cases are produced.

Description

Variety
50% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena, 20% Morenillo. Organically grown (certified) vines planted from 1950 – 1960. Tended in limestone and clay soil at 460 m ( 1,509ft) elevation. This is a vegan wine.

Production
20 – 24 months in 90% French and 10% American and oak barrels

Tasting Notes
Pungent, smoke- and spice-accented dark berry liqueur and cherry pit scents show excellent focus and pick up a hint of incense in the glass. Palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are complicated by suggestions of allspice and lavender pastilles, along with a hint of minerality emerging on the back half. The finish delivers noteworthy persistence, mounting tannins and a whiplash of juicy dark berry preserves, closing on a smoky note.

Food Pairing
This wine has high-pitched aromas of red fruits, wet stones and spices. With acidity that lends a “nervous” character to the fruit in the mouth, the wine’s tannins are substantial but fine grained. This is a wine of roundness, volume, depth and great length and should be enjoyed with rich foods like pheasant, duck, venison, fois gras, slow roasted pork and aged hard cheeses.
