Bodegas Matsu La Jefa 2020

Bodega Matsu sits in a land where the grape gives everything without asking for anything in return. Thanks to very special climatic conditions and a privileged soil that prevents the appearance of pests and diseases, in the DO Toro vineyards nature is always allowed to complete its own cycles. With La Jefa, Matsu shows us the feminine side of a winery that has not stopped captivating people since it started. A pleasant wine with character as well as all the necessary structure to make it last for a long time. No one can resist La Jefa!

Grape Varietals & Region: La Jefa is a white wine made mainly with the Spanish Malvasía variety from hundred-year-old and pre-phylloxera vineyards, alongside a small amount of other white varieties aged between 50 and 150 years. 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

Taste Profile: 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 ageing in casks, sweet character and 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. 

Winemaking Process: Once the grapes have reached optimal condition, they are harvested by hand and transported in boxes and small trailers. Then when they reach the winery, they macerate with the skins for 4 hours and are gently pressed with static racking. The resulting must then ferments spontaneously with native yeasts in new 600-litre French oak barrels. Finally, the wine rests on its lees in these same barrels for 14 months.
