Matetic EQ Cool Climate Syrah 2015

Our EQ Cool Climate Syrah 2015 is sourced from biodynamic vineyards located in the Rosario
Valley. The soils are chosen for their granitic origin, with the flat parts showing greater depth,
developed by the accumulation of materials and the decomposition of the granitic rock. The
selected slopes were chosen for their greater presence of quartz and intermediate state of
decomposition of the granitic rock, including some volcanic material. In both cases the root
systems develop deeply, allowing us some to dry-farm some blocks during a large part of the
growing season. The plants express themselves in a very balanced way thanks to the canopy
management that controls the natural vegetative exuberance of this variety. The grapes are
clones 174 and 470, lending a unique varietal typicity in both cases, with a perfect ripening in
this cool San Antonio climate.
VINIFICATION
Each lot was fermented separately in open-top tanks with 2- and 5-ton capacities, in order
to maintain the sectors and clones separate. The grapes underwent a cool maceration for 10
days for a gentle extraction of color, flavors, and aromas from the skins. Native yeasts during
alcoholic fermentation were combined with various enological techniques like punch downs and
pump overs, to enable an elegant and consistent extraction of the tannins. The wine was then
racked to carefully selected French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, where it remained
for 18–22 months prior to bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Intense violet color with red hues. The nose shows bold notes of black fruit and delicate notes
of floral aromas reminiscent of violets mixed with spices like pepper and a hint of wet earth.
The acidity is vibrant and juicy on the palate, with a very smooth and elegant texture that is
concentrated and persistent at the same time. The wine unfolds with contact with oxygen,
showing great complexity and intensity.
FOOD PAIRING
Ideal to accompany all kinds of red meats, lamb shank, game, blood sausage, charcuterie, and
intensely flavored aged cheese. We recommend decanting and serving at 18ºC.
