Harvested by hand in mid October, the grapes were selected twice and carefully destemmed. Then they were fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.
After that, this red wine form Terra Alta was transferred into 85% French and 15% American oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 20 months.
A wine with a remarkable ageing potential, Mather Teresina 2015 will drink beautifully for at least 10 years.
Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Mather Teresina has an intense claret colour with some mahogany tinges.
Remarkably complex and characterful, Mather Teresina Selecció Vinyes Velles embodies a classic paradigm of Mediterranean elegance. Deep suggestions of smoke and minerality, segueing into pristine blackberries and cranberries, tips of black pepper, liquorice and coffee, and notes of flowers and aromatic herbs.
Meaty and round, this red wine by Celler Piñol conveys a deep sense of terroir and an understated rural elegance. Chocolate, cherries, black olives, blueberries, flowers and aromatic herbs fill the palate. Finely crafted texture, detailed and nuanced, with a crisp, uplifting acidity and a very long, elegant finish.
