Torbreck Vinters 'The Pict'
A brooding and muscular black fruit accented Mataro known for its complexities of mineral, ironstone, blood and gamey notes balanced by liquorice and dark black plums. A wine that is loved by the sommelier community for its deceptive weight and freshness balanced by savoury earthy notes.
“Torbreck’s rich, hickory smoke infused 2018 The Pict Mataro spent two years in new oak. In conjunction with notes of dark plum and black olive, the result is a savory, meaty wine. Medium to full-bodied, intensely concentrated, velvety in texture and long on the licorice-tinged finish, it sets an exciting standard for this underappreciated variety. This rivals the success of the cooler-vintage 2017.” 95/100
