2022 Matassa 'French Disko'

Disko! Disko Disko! 

Single vineyard Cinsault- and we LOVE Cinsault. Blue fruit, perfumed and pretty - Cinsault is often ignored and rarely given the sole spotlight. Which is a grand shame really. This wine is just as happy alongside a charcoal BBQ feast as it is on it's own. This is fine boned, elegant example of just how special this variety is. To be adored. To be drunk now or kept a few more years - if you can manage it. 

Tom Lubbe is a New Zealander who grew up in South Africa. In the late 90’s, Tom was working at the only estate in South Africa using indigenous yeasts and lower yields. He helped innovate and shape the wine scene in South Africa and forged the space for winemakers like Craig Hawkins (Testalonga) whom spent several vintages working with Tom to flourish.  - Lo-Fi Wines.

'I first came across Matassa in London whilst working for a restaurant famed for it's wine list and familial connections to a very well known Master of Wine, sometime in 2015. It was one of the first 'natural' producers I had ever tried, and it totally blew my mind. Then, to my delight, when I started working at St. JOHN a few years later, I discovered that my boss tasted the very first vintage of Tom's and since then they had always imported a small amount each year from him. The stories told are many, and not suitable for here - but Matassa has always had a big place in my heart for being my first proper minimal intervention wine. <3 ' - Miriam
