Description

Dressed in deep violet and black plum colours. Its aromas unfold in layer after fruity layer of blueberries, black cherries, fresh plums, and raspberries, followed by the sweet spicy aromas of nutmeg, cloves, and black pepper, along with subtle notes of chocolate and smoke. The palate is fresh and juicy, with silky tannins that dance among veils of intense red and black fruit flavours with a touch of smoke and sweet spices. Given its acidity and tremendous structure, this wine promises to a long life ahead in the bottle.

Terroir:-

The grapes are harvested from vineyard plots that have two common characteristics: both are located on slopes with different sun exposure, where the predominant soils are of granitic origin with quartzite rocks and clay, low fertility and excellent drainage.

They are also managed according to organic and Biodynamic principles. The main type of Syrah clone is 174; it produces aromatic, balanced wines with a long lasting taste.

Adding a small amount of clone 470, the wine gains concentration and long silky tannins.

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 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.
