Matetic Corralillo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Bright ruby red color with violet inked hints. The nose is immensely fruity, with spicy and distinctive balsamic and chocolate notes. A concentrated, rich palate with round tannins leads to a long and juicy aftertaste.

Matetic Corralillo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 season was rather cool, with a summer cooler than the previous year, and a particularly
cold and cloudy January. The harvest for Corralillo Cabernet Sauvignon took place in mid-April
with excellent fruit quality showing great expression of the aromas, flavors, and acidity.

Our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from one of the most coastal sectors of the Maipo Valley,
very close to the Maipo River and influenced by both the Andes Mountains and the Pacific
Ocean. The soil is colluvial with a presence of rocks at all depths and good drainage, which
enables optimal ripening and concentration in the grapes.

The grapes were hand-picked and underwent a 7-day pre-fermentation cold maceration. Specific
enological techniques such as native yeasts and organic nutrition during alcoholic fermentation
were used to ensure good body and aromatic typicity. The wine had a 15-day post-fermentation
maceration before the final blend was made, with the goal of seeking complexity and balance
and to express the season in terms of weather and terroir. The wine aged for 18 months in French
oak barrels from different cooperages and forests and with varying levels of toast.

This wine is a deep, bright red-violet color. The nose offers a combination of ripe red fruits,
spices, and chocolate, and a balsamic touch typical of the area. The mouth-filling palate has
well-rounded and balanced tannins and a juicy, persistent finish.
