Take a moment to think about the wines that have got you really excited and I mean really excited. The ones that bring an instant smile to your face, has you looking around in wonder then back at the glass to check to see what you just tasted. Depending on who is reading this, that number could vary but I’ve no doubt everyone has had those moments.
I can put my hand on my heart and say this Mataro did exactly that to me from the start to the finish…of the bottle. 🙂
Very aromatic. Fresh and bold, berries and spicyness straight away. Eyes wide open!
Tasting this wine (that soon turned into drinking) brought with it dark berries, black cherries, and plums which are full on but it sits nicely at medium bodied. What may sound strange is, even though I’ve used the words ‘dark’ and ‘black’, the fruit is so bright and lively and it is delicately spiced up. Well that is what it seemed to be to me. The ‘mouth open, looking around and then back into the glass’ moment I mentioned earlier.
I don’t mind admitting to repeating this process a number of times. That is, smell – smile – taste – look around – look back in the glass right up until the bottle was empty.
