A self-confessed nomad, Luis the winemaker of LMT (who make this wine) roams the lands of Navarra and Rioja looking for exceptional plots of old or abandoned vines to turn his hand to. A total artisan, there’s a real "no bullsh*t" approach that makes these wines so exciting.
Navarra is the wine region just to the north of Rioja. The Masusta comes from a 60-year-old vineyard in the area of Carcar. The landscape captivated Luis and after working several years in a cooperative in the area, Luis decided to make his first wine alone. Masusta takes its name from the huge bramble that is in the middle of the vineyard which is shown on the label.
This is a wine that is rated highly in Spain. It's a fantastic expression of Garnacha (a grape that at lower prices doesn't always shine). With time spent in American and French oak, there is plenty of complexity which gives a long and defined finish.
