Tasting Notes

In a country that is dominated by large scale operations, Matetic is quite unique in that it’s a family owned, biodynamic winery producing 15,000 cases per year. Located in the Rosario Valley, a smaller enclave within the San Antonio Valley, around 60 miles southwest of Santiago and only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Matetic has found one of the perfect climates for producing world class, cool climate wines. Established in 1999, the Matetic family’s goal was to find balance and harmony between the winery’s organic agricultural practices and its state of the art winemaking facility. The EQ on the wineries label stands for equilibrio, the Spanish word for balance, which signifies the production of wines that reflect the balance between the vineyards, the winemaking practices and the natural environment.
The 2009 Matetic Sauvignon Blanc displays it cool climate origins to perfection without any excessive green or herbal notes to the fruit. The nose offers up notes of grapefruit and lemon. The palate has the edgy vibrancy one expects from a well made Sauvignon Blanc with green apple, citrus and some melon richness that is cut with a mineral component on the dryer finish. Showing well as we speak this should be enjoyed over the next 12 months.
