Tasting notes
Red plums, blackberry, violets, and cocoa powder. The 2020 Malbec begins fresh and floral on the nose. Swirling brings raspberry confiture, red licorice, sweet tobacco, and oak spice. The mouthfeel is juicy and fresh, with well-integrated oak and soft tannins. With some time in the glass, violets, plums, and dried herbs take over the aromatic profile. Extremely rounded and well balanced, the acid presentation here is outstanding. There is an intrinsic sweetness that makes the wine almost crunchy. This beautiful Malbec finishes long, with the perfect amount of grip, and a floral and blue fruit aftertaste. Drink now or in the next 8 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.
