Matetic Corralillo Pinot Noir 2017

Ruby red with violet reflections. The nose offers red cherries, blueberries and spices, very typical of this variety. The palate is elegant and fresh with soft tannins. Its vibrant acidity gives a juicy, long and persistent aftertaste.

Matetic Corralillo Pinot Noir 2017

The Pinot Noir grapes used for Corralillo Pinot Noir 2017 come mostly 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, with 60% of the total corresponding to clone 777, and 40% to
clone 115. 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.
VINIFICATION
The grapes were hand-harvested and transported to the winery, where they were cooled and
then subjected to a strict selection of bunches and grapes. Whole bunches and berries were
then transferred by gravity to stainless steel tanks with 8- and 5-ton capacities for a cool prefermentation maceration at 6ºC. The must was fermented using specially selected native yeasts
specific for this variety, using only natural yeast nutrients. A varying set of winemaking techniques
and extraction methods were used for more varietal expression and complexity. The wine aged
in French oak barrels for 11 months to improve the evolution of the tannins and correct aromas.
TASTING NOTES
With an intense and deep red color, this Pinot Noir shows aromas of red fruit like strawberry,
raspberry, and blueberry with a subtle spicy note very characteristic of the variety. The tannins
are smooth and elegant on the palate, and the vibrant acidity lends a long, juicy finish.
FOOD PAIRING
The ideal companion for pastas, mushroom risotto, duck confit, oily fish, light red meats, cheeses,
and spicy foods. Serve at 14ºC.
