Description

Telmo Rodriguez Matallana 2014

The winery Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodríguez elaborates this 2014 Matallana , a red wine from Ribera del Duero based on tinto fino and albillo of 2014. A blend of Tinto Fino (also known as Tempranillo), Navarro, Valenciano, Albillo and others.

Aromas of blackberries and black licorice with hints of dark, wet earth. A full and chewy red with lots of crushed berries and wet earth with hints of dark chocolate. The first release from Telmo Rodriguez in Duero of a blend of vineyards. Excellent. Needs two or three years of bottle age.

Traditional planting densities, bush vines. Organic viticulture, manual harvest in boxes. Fermentation in oak vats and tanks, with native yeasts. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

From the main region of Ribera del Duero, grapes are taken from a bunch of places! El Bosque, La Guiruela, Cascajoroa, Carrahoyales, Los Grijos, La Requina, Herrera, Los Mochos, La Cal, Hoyo Lucas, La Pardilla.

Very diverse terrior, clay soils, red feldspar soils, petrocalcic soils,
terraces developed from loams, conglomerates and sandstones. A mild winter with regular rainfall was followed by a warm and dry spring. The summer in turn was cool and dry, ripening was delayed. Frequent rains before harvest made appear some botrytis. Precise and consistent viticulture was necessary to offer the best upon harvest.

The only wine produced for now in Ribera del Duero is the 2014 Matallana, a wine that has the same name as the previous 2013, but in reality, it’s as if it’s a completely new wine. It’s a blend of nine vineyards in five villages—Sotillo, Roa, Fuentecén, Fuentemolinos and Pardilla—inspired by the old Vega Sicilia wines and the wines from Gérard Chave in Hermitage where he used to do a blend of soils. I see a line of continuity with the 2013, where I noticed a fresher and more elegant wine, but now they have added more vineyards, so it’s like adding new colors to the palette or more pieces to the puzzle, which allows them to do a better selection, as they only produce one wine with the best grapes from all their vineyards. It fermented in 3,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts. It’s a very elegant and fine red, with complexity and subtleness (perhaps from the blend of grapes, as it’s 85% Tempranillo and has some 15% of other varieties). The palate is also extremely elegant and refined, reflecting a good year with a long growing season. The tannins are very fine, and it finishes long and dry. 14,965 bottles produced.
