Product Description
Details

Produced in the Catalan region of Pla de Bages, Abadal Matís is an interesting Spanish red wine made from a blend the indigenous variety Mandó, delicate and aromatic, together with the international ones, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, which provide the bones.

Harvested at dusk to preserve the freshness of the fruit, after a careful selection the grapes were separately vinified according to the specific needs of each plot and each variety.

Once fermentation and maceration were completed, the wine musts were blended, after which they underwent malolactic fermentation.

Produced by the Abadal winery, this Crianza red wine was then aged for 10 months in oak barrels.

Finally, Abadal Matís 2017 was aged for some months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

Appearance

The wine Abadal Matís has a clean, bright, intense cherry colour with some purple tinges.

Nose

Complex and nuanced, with some notes of flowers and forest floor, typical of the Mandó variety, as well as notes of red and black fruit, some balsamic nuances and remembrances of green bell pepper, coming from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties.

Palate

Smooth and well-balanced, this wine of Bodegas Abadal has some liquor-infused fruit, with some spicy tips and balsamic notes. This Crianza red wine of Abadal has a crisp acidity, dim mineral notes and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

Nuanced and original, the blend of an obscure local variety and two international ones gives Abadal Matís 2017 a very interesting character.

I have great respect for this winery. This Bordeaux blend is very good. Very fresh, with no excess of ripeness or oak.
