Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve chilled. Located in the valley of El Rosario just 15km from the Pacific Ocean, Matetic is a family-owned Chilean winery which specializes in producing delicious New World wines according to organic and biodynamic principles. The family emigrated to Chile in 1892 from the Croatian coast and established a successful sheep farm in Punta Arenas before moving into winemaking in 1999. Today they apply their extensive knowledge of the local terroir and agriculture to growing top quality grapes in a variety of different appellations. This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc begins life in the “Valle Hermoso” or “Beautiful Valley” which is just 9km from the Pacific Ocean. Here the vineyards sit on the slopes where they enjoy great sun exposure as well as cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean. Once in the winery the grapes are primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve varietal typicity with 30% fermented in concrete eggs and neutral oak barrels. The young wine ages on the lees for 4 months before bottling and release. The result is a zippy, mouthwatering white which immediately reminds of the sea with hints of salty minerality, bright citrus and tropical fruits like papaya and mango. On the palate there is ample freshness as well as ripe fruit notes and a salty minerality on the finish.
