Bodegas Juan Matias Torres Perez 'Vid Sur' Negramoll 2009
|Juan Matías Torres Pérez is a fifth-generation vinegrower from La Palma. Today, Juan and his family make traditional-style wines from their own two hectares (five acres) of vines located in Fuencaliente. 1999 was the first vintage that they bottled under their name. Before that, they made wine mostly for their own consumption and the rest sold in bulk to the local restaurant. Élevage remains quite old-school in this house: no temperature control and wild yeast fermentation with whole-clusters (around half of the cuvée). The wines are then raised in very old 600-liter American oak barrels and bottled unfiltered.
