Wines - 2018 Second Take Mataro
Due to the 84% whole bunch, the look screams bright, fresh and blue tones, and the aroma is too

Light on its feet and not a typical bigger style of Mataro that is apparent in this area.
It is pretty, fragrant and just a pleasure and delight to see Mataro expressed like this.
