Winemaker Notes

Ruby-red. Intensely perfumed aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry compote and licorice develop a vanilla overtone as the wine opens up. Plush blackberry, cherry-vanilla, spice cake and floral pastille flavors show excellent clarity and a seamless texture, and a peppery flourish adds lift and bite. Fine-grained tannins build slowly and give shape to the impressively long, sweet finish, which leaves behind floral pastille and dark fruit liqueur notes.-- Josh Raynolds.

Wine Information

Mather Teresina is a quintessentially Mediterranean wine made by the founding family of DO Terra Alta at Celler Piñol. Over four generations, the Piñol family have built their livelihood around their heritage, embracing regional traditions within their picturesque old vineyards located an hour’s drive southwest from Barcelona. In line with their philosophy of conservation, Celler Piñol currently farm all of their vineyards organically and are spearheading an effort to revive a forgotten and beautifully aromatic native grape of Terra Alta, Morenillo. Mather Teresina is a single vineyard field blend of Garnacha, Cariñena, and Morenillo, showcasing luscious fruit and silky tannins right off the cork, but can age for decades. In other words, this is a collector’s Garnacha blend to rival the best producers along the Mediterranean coast, including the famous houses of the Southern Rhone. It is also a very personal project for the family, paying homage with its name to the late grandmother of current winery director Juanjo Piñol, who works alongside his mother Josefina, the cellar master.
