Matetic 'Corralillo' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Matetic 'Corralillo' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 90 pts Vinous

Tasting Notes

3/22/19
This has an aromatic lift with some oak spice and a notion of Maipo's classic mint, earth tones to darker red fruit on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, this still has retained its vibrancy and freshness even with extended bottle age. Red fruit flavors are nuanced with a spice component while riper, round tannins gives this an appealing textural feel with adding a nice structural framework to the fruit. This has nice length and is in its sweet spot with several more years of great drinking in front of it. Matetic always makes impressive wines and this is a great illustration.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Vinous June 2015
Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and red plum aromas are sharpened by a peppery note. At once juicy and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors that deepen with aeration. Spicy, focused and gently sweet on the finish, which lingers with gently building tannins and a suave floral quality. Drink 2017-2021.



Winemaker Notes

Our Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is sourced from the best plots in the Maipo Valley, vineyards that benefit from the Mediterranean climate of the Andes mountains and the Maipo river. The soils are of alluvial origin, sandy loam texture and high in gravel content with a very good drainage. These conditions allow the grapes to ripen uniformly and achieve near-perfect fruit maturity. We added 9% of Syrah coming from the best plots of our vineyards from El Rosario: the result is more complexity and distinctive cool climate freshness.
