Ca' Di Mat 'Valautin' Garnacha
The second vintage the village red, the 2018 Valautín Garnacha is from a cold and wet year, a very different year than 2017, which was warm and dry. The wine was produced in the same way as the 2017, fermentation with full clusters, followed by a long maceration and an élevage of one year without racking in oak containers of different sizes, this year including a 5,000-liter oak vat, as volumes had grown. I love the nose here, which shows the full clusters in the long maceration, a note of gunpowder and a slightly deeper color (as I've seen in cooler vintages in the village of San Martín), and it is less developed and more primary than the 2017. The profile is quite different—this feels cooler, more vertical, very intense and long, with a granite-driven texture. It finishes long and tasty. Amazing! 12,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020. 92+ points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parkers’ The Wine Advocate
