Description

Matetic Vineyards EQ Pinot Noir

Matetic Vineyards EQ Pinot Noir is intense violet-red in colour, very deep and bright. The nose reveals intense red fruit, cherries and strawberries with earthy, mineral notes. Delicate, complex and concentrated, this wine has a soft, full palate, well-balanced acidity and supple tannins.

EQ Pinot Noir is crafted from their vineyards located in the Casablanca Valley, 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the Pacific Ocean. This excellent terroir is defined by a maritime influence, the constant coastal breezes and low temperatures during the season, and the soils consist of granite and mica. This vineyard is managed according to organic and Biodynamic principles in every stage of vine growing, producing high-quality wine grapes with a strong sense of place.

All the grapes were hand harvested, carefully transported to the winery and strictly selected after cooling. The grapes were fed by gravity into stainless steel tanks of 5 and 2 tons capacity, where maceration takes place for seven days at 42.8° Fahrenheit (6° Celsius). The wine was gently fermented using only indigenous yeasts and natural yeast nutrient.

The name EQ comes from the word EQUILIBRIO (Spanish word for Balance) and represents their commitment to nature, by pursuing a perfect balance between the grapevines, soil and climate of their vineyards. EQ offers balanced wines with outstanding quality and elegance. Delivering great complexity with nuanced layers of flavors, EQ wines have a fine structure that guarantees a great ageing potential.

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.
