Matetic Syrah 2015

Dark violet in color, and deep. On the nose, it’s a Syrah with great varietal typicity,
showing its coastal origin with lots of complexity: elegant notes of pepper, wet earth,
meat, spices, and chocolate, with subtle violet notes. On the palate, it’s characterized
by its precision and elegance, with smooth tannins and great depth with flavors that
are reminiscent of black fruit with iodized notes. An intense, elegant finish.

HARVEST
The harvest took place between the last week of April and the first week of May. It
was characterized by low yields per plant, allowing for a low, slow ripening of the fruit.

One of the blocks that produces the grapes for Matetic Syrah is characterized by soils
that are almost flat, with a very deep, loamy granitic texture. The other block is 100%
granitic soil in a state of decomposition, with some quartzite rocks and volcanic silt.
Only Biodynamic techniques are used in the handling of the soil fertility, through
natural methods such as the use of specific plants cultivated between the rows of
grapevines, bolstered by compost and work in the soil. This allows us to achieve very
good, deep root development with natural irrigation, or dry-farming, during a large
part of the season. This wine is a blend of the 174 and 470 clones, with the first lending
unequalled aromatic complexity with spiced notes, and the second lending volume
and texture on the palate.
VINIFICATION
The grapes were harvested by hand according to the Biodynamic calendar, and
arrived at the cellar, where they were cooled while undergoing a strict selection of
bunches and grapes. The grapes then underwent a cold maceration for 10 days, then
fermented with natural yeasts. Just 50% of the grapes are destemmed, while the other
half remained in whole clusters, adding increased texture and complexity. Various
techniques of punchdowns and pumpovers of the cap were used for a very elegant
extraction of color, aromas, and flavors. The wine remained in French oak barrels for
22 months, before being racked and bottled, unfiltered. The bottled wine then aged
in our cellar for 3 years, waiting for its optimal point to be tasted.
TASTING NOTES
Dark violet in color, and deep. On the nose, it’s a Syrah with great varietal typicity,
showing its coastal origin with lots of complexity: elegant notes of pepper, wet earth,

are reminiscent of black fruit with iodized notes. An intense, elegant finish.

We recommend pairing the wine with all types of red meat, including those with strong
flavors such as lamb, grilled meats in general, as well as aged cheeses with intense
flavors and textures. Serve at 18°C. We recommend decanting the wine before service.
