Matetic EQ Cool Climate Sauvignon Blanc, Chile 2019

£17.65

HARVEST – The 2019 season was clearly coastal, with a rather cool and cloudy summer. The EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc was harvested beginning on March 11, the first fruit day of the biodynamic calendar, looking for the precise level of ripening for each block and clonal selection, and finished at the beginning of April with excellent fruit quality, with great expressions of flavours, aromas, and acidity. The year was marked by cool, dry days and an absence of precipitation. It was a very good year for Sauvignon Blanc, with great balance between the flavours, varietal typicity, and freshness.

TASTING NOTES – Pale yellow in colour with delicate green hues. The complex but delicate aromas are dominated by citrus and ripe tropical fruit like papaya and grapefruit peel with nuances of saline notes and a hint of spice typical of this variety in coastal climates. The palate is fresh and nervy, crisp and concentrated, with fruity notes and a minerality that gives it a hint of saline.
FOOD PAIRING – The wine is the perfect companion for fish, especially raw fish dishes like ceviche, tuna “tiradito”, or carpaccio, well-done fish with light sauces. It’s ideal for raw shellfish, especially scallops
and oysters, and fresh salads. It also goes well with flavourful cheeses like blue cheese and goat cheese. Serve at 10–12ºC.
