Ca' di Mat Fuente de los Huertos 2022

"Orchard Fountain" aptly describes this Garnacha from the Fuente de los Huertos plot, located at nearly 800 metres above sea level with a northwest orientation. The 50-year-old vines grow in shallow granitic soils rich in quartz. The vineyard, part of a Special Protection Area for Birds and the Natura 2000 network, is dry-farmed and organically cultivated, registered with the CAEM. The grapes are harvested manually in 15 kg crates, undergo spontaneous fermentation with gentle maceration for 60 days, and are aged for one year in 500-litre French oak barrels.

It's like a mix of Valautín and Los Peros, presenting the best of both. The result is a sophisticated and almost seamless wine. Notes of barberry candy, strawberry, raspberry, damp earth, and red flowers—just everything I love. Obviously, it's too young, but it's so beautiful. Nice tannins, nice freshness. Great value.

Wine #5 on Ca' di Mat Uncorked event.

Ca' di Mat

Curro Bareño and Jesús Olivares, already experienced with challenging regions through their Fedellos do Couto and Peixes projects (which they later merged into simply Fedellos), embraced the challenge of Gredos, finding old vineyards. In 2016, they founded a new winery called Ca' di Mat, meaning House of Fools in Piedmontese, reflecting the founders' adventurous spirit and willingness to take risks in exploring and reviving lesser-known wine regions. Their approach hasn't changed much, with a focus on minimal intervention and respect for the environment, but here they reveal a different terroir.
