Matetic EQ Costal Sauvignon Blanc 2021

92 pts – Vinous

Pale yellow in color with delicate greens hues. The complex nose is dominated by citrus and tropical aromas like mango, papaya and grapefruit peel, with nuances of light herbal notes and the typical crispiness that this variety shows in coastal cool climates. The palate is fresh and vivid, crisp and concentrated, very fruity with a salty mineral dimension leading to a lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes:

This wine is made with organic grapes from the winery’s biodynamic vineyards. Harvest began the first week of April, looking for optimum maturity in each plot and clonal selection. This vintage had a very cool and cloudy summer which slowed the plants’ metabolism, allowing the fruit to ripen slowly without losing the acidity and aromas in the process. The grapes come from the area of “Valle Hermoso” (Beautiful Valley) located 6 miles from the Pacific Ocean, where the vineyards are planted on slopes and benefit from the cool coastal climate, which allows each clone to develop special characteristics. The predominant soil type is decomposed grey granite with a presence of iron-rich mica. The loose subsoil allows root penetration and balanced growing, thanks to the winery’s organic and biodynamic management. The grapes underwent a cold soak for 12 hours before pressing under a layer of inert gas, preserving the grapes’ aromatic potential. Fermentation was conducted under controlled low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in contact with fine lees for four months. 30% was fermented in concrete 700L egg-shaped vessels and neutral oak barrels of 228 – 400L to enhance the mineral notes, texture and mouthfeel of the final wine.
