Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a pale yellow color, with subtle green highlights. On the nose, there are aromas of asparagus mixed with some fruits such as pineapple, peaches and mangoes. Floral aromas can also be distinguished, of vanilla and soft minerals. The mouth is delicate and balanced, with no one taste dominating. Great acidity, coming naturally from San Antonio's cool climate, gives the wine a persistent, refreshing finish. This is a wine with ageing potential, since it will gain complexity in the bottle.

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

My Notes:

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.
