Stains the palate with fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors that turn deeper and spicier with aeration. Closes stony and very long, with lingering florality and no rough edges. This intensely vibrant wine was aged in oak foudres.
Muti Albarino was conceived as a tribute to Patrick Mata’s mother Christiane, with whom he spoke German at home – “Muti” means “Mom” in German. Made by Rodrigo Mendez and Patrick’s lifelong friend and co-founder of Olé, Alberto Orte, Muti is a classic expression of Salnes Albarino. Muti is sourced from three different sites. The first vineyard was planted in 1912, with granite soil, located in the town of Palina, just 30 meters (100 feet) from the Atlantic Ocean. The other vineyards were planted in 1972, located in the towns of Meaño and Dena. All in all, this classic Albarino showcases the classic terroir of Rías Baixas, with intensely maritime character, framed by salinity, flinty minerality and mouthwatering acidity.
