This wine comes from one of the most coastal sectors of the Maipo Valley, very close to the Maipo River and influenced by both the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The soil is colluvial with a presence of rocks at all depths and good drainage, which enables optimal ripening and concentration in the grapes.
Matetic vineyards embody the pioneering spirit and vision of modern Chilean winemaking. This biodynamic project was founded in 1999 by the Matetic family, originally Croatian settlers who arrived in Chilean Patagonia in 1892. Having established themselves as farmers with extensive landholdings, the fourth generation of the family turned their attention to grapes. Confident of the attributes of the climate and soils in the coastal El Rosario Valley of San Antonio, they planted 120 hectares of vines, and now farm 160 hectares of coastal biodynamic vineyard.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes were hand-picked and underwent a 7-day pre-fermentation cold maceration. Specific enological techniques such as native yeasts and organic nutrition during alcoholic fermentation were used to ensure good body and aromatic typicity. The wine had a 15-day post-fermentation maceration before the final blend was made, with the goal of seeking complexity and balance and to express the season in terms of weather and terroir. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels from different cooperages and forests and with varying levels of toast.
The ideal companion for grilled red meat, game, matured cheeses and charcuterie.
