Winemaker Notes

The 2019 Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc is a pale yellow color with delicate green hues. The complex nose is dominated by citrus and tropical aromas like mango, papaya and grapefruit peel, with nuances of light herbal notes and the typical crispness that this variety shows in coastal cool climates. The palate is fresh and vivid, crisp and concentrated. Very fruity, with a salty mineral dimension leading to a lingering finish.

This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with fish, especially raw fish dishes like ceviche, tuna carpaccio, sushi, oysters, scallops, salads, and goat or blue cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Matetic's Sauvignon Blanc has a great quality/price ratio, and even the top-of-the-range 2019 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc sells for under $20. They want a Sauvignon for the table, one that combines freshness and volume. They fermented part of it in used barrels and concrete, and it matured with the lees for four months in barrique and concrete eggs. This is more restrained—not as aromatic, less herbal—but the palate is terribly juicy and mineral, focused and makes you salivate. It should work wonders with modern Peruvian gastronomy.

JS 92
James Suckling

Subtle, minerally nose. Some chili pepper and wet stones. Very tensile, taut palate with a lithe, transparent texture. Peaches on the palate with a chalky accent. Very clean and long. A serious sauvignon blanc. Around 1/3 fermented in old barrels, 1/3 in 700L concrete eggs and 1/3 in stainless steel tanks. Drink now.

Tim Atkin

Julio Bastías uses grapes from Matetic's Valle Hermoso plantings, located eight kilo meter from the Pacific, to make this barrel and amphora-aged Sauvignon Blanc. Gooseberry and passion fruit flavors are supported by racy, saline acidity. 2020-22

Matetic Matetic Winery Winery Image

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.

A region that has become synonymous with some of the best whites of Chile, the Casablanca Valley is full of dozens of bodegas who either grow fruit here or come from outside to source from local growers for their own white wine programs. The valley runs from east to west, which means that its westernmost vineyards receive the most cooling influence from the reliable afternoon sea breezes. The soils also tend to be heavier in clay in the west, whereas the eastern end of the valley is warmer and its soils are predominantly granitic. Sauvignon blanc thrives here, Chardonnay does well and Pinot noir is not uncommon.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
