Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a very pale yellow color, with green hues. The nose is complex and delicate, with aromas of mature tropical fruit such as mango and lychee, with apple custard (cherimoya), papaya and lime peel, mixed in with herbal notes and green chili. The mouth is concentrated, fruity and fresh, dominated by a persistent mineral overtone.

This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with oily fishes such as salmon or bluefish, cerviche, sea urchin, oysters and sharp cheese.

About Matetic:

The story of the Matetic Winery begins in 1999 when the Matetic family decided to diversify their business ventures and enter the world of wine, confident in the virtues of the climate and soils in the Rosario Valley. With a firm conviction in the vital importance of maintaining a strong professional team to guide every step of the project, the family incorporated Alan York (Biodinamic Consultant), Ken Bernards (Consulting Winemaker), and Ann Kraemer (Viticultural Consultant) into the project in 2000 to ensure that Matetic wines achieve the highest quality. The EQ stands for Equilibrium... balance.
