Red Wine Abadal Matís 2018
Availability: In stock
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 and Merlot, which provide the bones.
Harvested at dawn 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, Abadal Matís 2018 was then aged for 10 months in oak barrels.
Finally, this red wine from Pla de Bages was aged for some months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.
The wine Abadal Matís is low purple with some garnet tinges.
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, indicative of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties.
Smooth and well-balanced, this wine of Bodegas Abadal has some liquor-infused fruit, with some spicy tips and mineral notes. Crisp acidity, slim tannins a long, balsamic finish.

Nuanced and original, the blend of an obscure local variety and two international ones gives Abadal Matís 2018 a very interesting character.
