Winemaker Notes

Gordo showcases the brilliant quality of the Mourvèdre grape from this sunny appellation. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color along with notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, black raspberries and a hint of blueberries. The sensational fruit characteristics are pure, as well as vivid. This full-bodied, opulent, stunningly savory, expansively flavored wine can be drunk over the next 2-3 years. - Notes by Robert Parker

Wine Information

"Gordo" is Patrick Mata's affectionate term for his father, José Mata. Across nearly four generations, Patrick's family has been involved in wine production in various Spanish regions, including Málaga, Montilla, Sanlucar, Rioja, and others. Their wines found their way to numerous countries, including the United States, both before and after the Prohibition era. However, in the 1960s, the demand for Málaga wines faced a significant decline, leading to the closure of the Mata winery in 1972. "Gordo" wine serves as a tribute to the Mata family's winemaking heritage, with a special focus on Patrick's father. Presently, after several decades, Patrick and Alberto Orte, operating under Vinos del Atlántico, are reviving their family's legacy. They are producing wines in various regions throughout the Iberian Peninsula, including the creation of this Monastrell, which beautifully encapsulates the richness and elegance of the southeastern Spanish terroir of Yecla.
