Tasting notes

Boysenberry, pencil shavings, ripe plums, and hints of green peppercorn. The wine opens to blackberry confiture, cherry, red licorice, and hints of violets and tobacco leaf. Extremely energetic, the mouthfeel is medium-bodied with great acidity and tension, but without losing texture and roundness. There’s an underlying minerality that is typical from this amazing Conner Lee site. With tons of black and red berries and surrounded by a floral lift and a minty aftertaste, the wine finishes long, with a touch of citrus sweetness and hints of oak spice and dry mountain herbs. Beautiful now, you can enjoy this fantastic Franc for the next 15 years.

Winemaker & Viticulturist
A Chilean with Greek roots, Matías was a Marine officer and Naval Engineer in Chile for more than seven years when he realized that it was time to change the course of his career: In 2005, he started studying Agricultural Engineering at the University of Chile, where he graduated with distinction and a major in Viticulture and Enology. He worked in Chile for a few years and in 2011 he decided to start traveling the world on a quest to learn new wine-making techniques. After several harvests in Oceania, Europe and Africa, he settled down in France, to do his post degrees at the Universities of Bordeaux and Montpellier. He also performed for two years as a Maître de Chai for one of the oldest and most reputable wineries in Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie.
After years of traveling and over 15 harvests, he came to the United States and joined Gård Vintners/Lawrence Vineyards as a Production Winemaker and Viticulturist, and is currently head winemaker for Gård Vintners, Desert Wind Winery, Valo Cellars, and his own label, Massalto. In his spare time he likes to jump out of planes and is a Judo Black Belt.
