Matetic Vineyards Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc

Matetic Vineyards Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc is pale bright yellow with green hues. The nose offers herbal and citric aromas such as grapefruit alongside tropical fruits such as mango and papaya. In the mouth it offers a fresh and juicy acidity, great volume with an elegant and balanced long finish.

Perfect for appetizers or fresh vegetable salads and sea food, especially cebiche (fresh raw fish marinated in lime juice) or fish “a la plancha” (grilled on a metal plate). A classic combination is Sauvignon Blanc with clam chowder: the acid in the wine cuts through the creaminess of the soup to leave a refreshing, clean feeling on the palate.

This wine is made with three different clones of Sauvignon Blanc:  242, Davis 1 and 107. Each clone is planted in different blocks of their coastal-climate vineyards located in the San Antonio Valley. The  decomposed granite and quartz soils of this vineyard offer ingredients of great complexity for the final blend. The organic and biodynamic management seeks to create good airflow and sunlight penetration  in the canopy, to stimulate the ideal ripeness, development of the characteristic aromatic components of the variety and avoid bunch diseases

Each block was hand harvested in one or two passes, looking for the optimal ripeness of each lot. After sorting, some of the grapes were destemmed and underwent a cold soak for 6 to 8 hours, others were pressed as whole bunches, looking for a wine with great aromatic intensity, mouthfeel and freshness. Fermentation was held at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks of different sizes for 30 days, afterwards, the fine lees were stirred periodically for 3 months to increase the aromatic complexity and mouthfeel.

Canopy and water management allows a healthy balance between grapes production and growth. The low yields results in fruit with higher concentration of colour, aroma and flavour.

The Matetic family arrived in Chile some 100 years ago from what is now Croatia and acquired large haciendas in the southern tip of the country which they used for sheep and dairy farming.

It was in 1999 that the family bought the estate in the San Antonio Valley and turned their hand to winemaking.

They are now one of the most revered wine producers in Chile and have been awarded a plethora of prestigious awards.

The winery was designed in collaboration with the architect Lawrence Odfjell and built in 2004 and relies on a gravitational flow design that optimises management of the grapes brought in from the nearby vineyards, which complements the organic and biodynamic principles that are followed at the estate.

The proximity to the Pacific Ocean benefits their vineyards. They experience cool nights, morning mist and sea breezes during afternoons. This is a cool and dry region, where rains only fail during the winter period. All these conditions help to achieve slow ripening, healthy grapes with crisp natural acidity and intense flavours.

Their granite soils are very poor in nutrients and very rick in quartz minerals. Their sandy character allows for excellent drainage and root penetration.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.
