Viña Matalian 2013

Was fortunate enough this week to meet Primitivo Collantes, the man behind one of my favourite wineries in the sherry triangle and the best piece of real estate in Chiclana: Finca Matalian. Given the occasion I thought it was time to see how this palomino fino from that little plot in 2013 had developed in bottle and it wasn’t at all bad.

Quite a dark colour, with clear signs of a little bit of bottle oxidation, but on the nose it still had nice aromas of some fruit and some sweet herbs – maybe more herbs than fruit compared to when it was young. Similarly on the palate it had jammy fruit and it seemed to us to have gained a bit of spice and saline intensity.

A nice wine ageing gracefully (still have another bottle somewhere too).
