Chile | 2019
ob

£16.95 a bottle

The Corralillo Carmenère, Matetic is deep violet in colour with red flashes. The very intense nose mixes notes of red and black fruit with aromas of spice and a hint of picor typical of the variety. On the palate the wine is well balanced between its potency and freshness, with a prolonged, intense finish with good volume.

Origin

The origin of this wine is the Colchagua Valley, specifically Apalta, with vineyards located on hills, with very good exposure to the sun. The soils are principally granitic-colluvial in origin with low fertility, excellent drainage, and lots of complexity in terms of the presence of clays, silt, and organic material. The vineyard is managed using organic agriculture, and is very specific in terms of the fertility and finding the balance between ripeness, varietal expression, and fruit concentration.

Producer

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.

Grape Variety

100% Carmenère

The grapes underwent a strict fruit selection prior to seven days of cold soaking before the alcoholic fermentation. The wine aged for 16 months in French oak from different barrel makers, forests, and levels of toast. The final blend contains a small percentage of Syrah, adding a hint of complexity and freshness.

Food Match

Ideal to accompany ripe cheese, all kinds of red meat including mild lamb, charcuterie and vegetable curry.
