Matetic Corralillo Gewürztraminer 2020

Matetic vineyards embody the pioneering spirit and vision of modern Chilean winemaking. This biodynamic project was founded in 1999 by the Matetic family. A typically expressive yet elegant style of Gewürztraminer: exotic lychee and rose notes exude from the glass, with more complex savoury, ginger and tea elements adding depth to the palate, along with a gentle, textured finish.

Matetic Corralillo Gewürztraminer 2020

Matetic vineyards embody the pioneering spirit and vision of modern Chilean winemaking. This biodynamic project was founded in 1999 by the Matetic family. A typically expressive yet elegant style of Gewürztraminer: exotic lychee and rose notes exude from the glass, with more complex savoury, ginger and tea elements adding depth to the palate, along with a gentle, textured finish.

The Gewürztraminer vineyards are planted in the coldest sectors of the property,
which allows the grapes to ripen slowly and develop excellent aromatic expression.
The soils are deep, with granitic composition in different stages of decomposition
and a great deal of quartz and some volcanic matter. This enables tremendous root
development and optimal vegetative expression, and organic and biodynamic vineyard
management helps the vines reach a natural balance. Canopy management aims
to keep the fruit partially exposed to the sun for greater complexity of aromas and
flavors in this variety.
VINIFICATION
The grapes were harvested in two lots. One half was destemmed and macerated for
12 hours at 5 °C, and the other half was whole-cluster pressed at low pressure. This
allows us to achieve great varietal aromatic expression and intense freshness as well
as tremendous volume and roundness on the palate. The must was then fermented
over 30 days in 300-liter stainless steel barrels with periodic movement of the fine lees
for a month to increase complexity and persistence on the palate.
The wine was then racked to 400-liter barrels to age slowly with very little oxidation
in search of roundness and texture.
TASTING NOTES
Pairs well with fish-based dishes such as sushi, dishes subtly seasoned with ginger or
curry, Asian dishes in general, and dessert.
Serve at 10 °C
