Matetic CEQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

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.

Matetic CEQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

The grapes for our EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019 are sourced from our Valle Hermoso vineyard,
located just 12 km from the Pacific Ocean, and planted on gentle hills where they are directly
influenced by the cool coastal climate. This closeness to the coast lends unique characteristics
to the grapes, of which 65% correspond to clone 242, and 25% to clone 1. Valle Hermoso’s soils
are of granitic origin in an advanced state of decomposition, with a presence of mica rich in
iron, and a texture without aggregation at a depth, where the roots can grow unencumbered.
Thanks to the biodynamic management of the vineyard, the grapes reach a natural balance.
Additionally, for this vintage we selected soils according to their distinct characteristics of granitic
composition, depth, and conductivity, among other factors.
The yields were approximately 8.5 tons per hectare, with healthy grapes that showed great
varietal typicity.
VINIFICATION
The grapes were destemmed and underwent a cool maceration lasting an average of 12 hours
before being pressed in oxygen-less conditions through the use of inert gas, preserving the grapes’
aromatic potential. One part of the alcoholic fermentation took place at low temperatures in
stainless steel tanks of varying sizes, where the wine then remained for 4 months in contact with
its fine lees. The other part of the must fermented either in 700-liter concrete eggs or French
oak barrels with 228–400 liter capacity, to enhance the mineral notes, texture, and mouth feel
of the wine.
TASTING NOTES
Pale yellow in color with delicate green hues. The complex but delicate aromas are dominated
by citrus and ripe tropical fruit like papaya and grapefruit peel with nuances of saline notes and
a hint of spice typical of this variety in coastal climates. The palate is fresh and nervy, crisp and
concentrated, with fruity notes and a minerality that gives it a hint of saline.
FOOD PAIRING
The wine is the perfect companion for fish, especially raw fish dishes like ceviche, tuna “tiradito”,
or carpaccio, well-done fish with light sauces. It’s ideal for raw shellfish, especially scallops
and oysters, and fresh salads. It also goes well with flavorful cheeses like blue cheese and goat
cheese. Serve at 10–12ºC.
