A bold, oaky, organic red from the Basque country. Masusta comes from a 60-year-old vineyard in Navarra, and is made by nomad winemaker Luis Moya. After working several years in a cooperative in the area, Luis decided to make his first wine from the grapes of this vineyard. The Basque word ‘Masusta’ means ‘blackberry’ – and this wine takes its name from the huge bramble that is in the middle of the vines. This wine spends 11 months in oak before natural settling and extremely gentle filtration. A beautiful red-fruit bouquet of cherries and raspberries, it is fresh on the palate, with a nice earthy lick of oak, pepper and spice. Full of flavour, but not too heavy.
Very rich & delicious
