Matsu in Japanese means “wait”, and it is probably the concept that best defines the philosophy that inspired the wines comprising this collection. Respect for nature, knowing when to wait for the ideal moment and the regard for people who have devoted their life to the vineyard and making wine are the ideas that have inspired this collection. For this reason, the labels have been mostly dedicated to the three generations of winegrowers that provide their youth, maturity and wisdom in the different moments of its life.
From among the extraordinary quality vineyards of D. O. Toro, Vintage’s technical team has selected true centenarian, or almost centenarian, gems from which a top-quality grape is obtained. These vineyards produce the Tinta de Toro variety; are between 80 and 100 years of age and have a very low yield per vine; are located in very poor land; and are cultivated following the area’s tradition of not interfering with the natural processes and the pace set by nature, while using in many cases techniques employed in biodynamic agriculture.
The soils on which these vines grow are sandy and composed of sandstone, clay and Pliocene limestone. Altitude changes in each plot of land are practically non-existent; all the vineyards are located between 650 and 735 metres in the typical undulating land present in this area.
