A Sauvignon Blanc made from a blend of three clones, each planted in a distinct block of the coastal vineyards, where decomposed granitic-quartz soils lend very complex components to the final blend. Biodynamic viticulture helps to promote ideal ripening and increase the typical aromatic profile of this grape variety.

Blocks were individually hand-harvested, in order to maximize the ripening potential of each lot. Whole bunches were pressed and only destemmed grapes underwent a cold maceration for 6–8 hours, in order to develop a wine with great aromatic intensity and good volume and freshness. Fermentation took place at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks of various sizes for 30 days. Next the fine lees were pumped-over for 3 months to enhance aromatic complexity and texture.

Matetic Vineyards

Matetic vineyards embody the pioneering spirit and vision of modern Chilean winemaking. This biodynamic project was founded in 1999 by the Matetic family, originally Croatian settlers who arrived in Chilean Patagonia in 1892. Having established themselves as farmers with extensive landholdings, the fourth generation of the family turned their attention to grapes. Confident of the attributes of the climate and soils in the coastal El Rosario Valley of San Antonio, they developed 120 hectares of vineyard. This unique enclosed valley of rolling hills, in close proximity to the sea, offers one of the most spectacular vineyards in Chile. Matetic has fast gained a reputation as the modern face of Chilean wines, and achieved particular renown for their signature style of cool-climate Syrah, hitherto not established in this part of Chile.

Since the start, the team at Matetic embraced organic and biodynamic agriculture as a way of crafting balanced wines with a sense of place, as well as making a commitment to the environment for future generations. Today, they farm 160 hectares of certified organic and biodynamic vineyards, focusing on cool-climate varieties. The vineyard is treated as one organism, with the application of biodynamic compost (all of which is made on the estate), seeding cover crops, and cultivation between the rows. A walk through their vineyards will afford you views of alpacas, geese and ducks that work in natural harmony with the vines to control pests and limit undergrowth.
