Description

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.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling 2020

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2020

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak. The wine was held in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling. Clear, pale straw in colour with fresh, delicate perfumes of stoned fruit, honeysuckle and almond blossom. On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

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.

Aromo Viognier 2020

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.

Josef Chromy Chardonnay 2017

Pale green straw. Complex, citrus and white peach with light cinnamon and toast characters from regular barrel stirring. A rich texture wine showing citrus, and nectarine flavours with integrated French oak. The palate is rich and full from barrel fermentation but balanced with natural acidity which gives structure and length.

Domaine Langlois Chateau Saumur Blanc 2019

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage. Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.

Loimer Riesling 2020

A rather restrained nose of fresh apricot and white stone fruit develops into youthful lime perfumes. On the palate, the Loimer Riesling has a crunchy acidity and lots of texture. Light-bodied, the wine is balanced and has a medium to long finish.

Three Choirs Willow Brook 2021

Dobogo Tokaji Furmint 2018

Medium gold in colour with a complex array of aromas including fresh notes of lime, pear, ripe apple, quince, herbs, chamomile and a hint of spiciness. The taught acid structure balances the ripe fruit concentration and salty, mineral character, which lingers on the elegant finish. This is a young and dynamic wine, which can be enjoyed immediately or aged for several years.
