Matetic Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The wine is made from four different Sauvignon Blanc clones (Davis 1, 297, 242, & 107) each of them planted in different blocks of the winery’s coastal vineyards with exceptional soil and sun exposure conditions. The organic and biodynamic grape production is focused on providing optimal lighting & ventilation conditions with the purpose of avoiding disease and stimulating the development of the aromatics of this varietal. The first 3 clones develop an intense aromatic and tropical fruit expression, where the fourth shows more herbal aromas. Whole bunches were pressed, and only destemmed grapes underwent a cold soak for 8-10 hours in order to develop a fresh wine with intense aromatic expression. Fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks for 30 days and then fine lees were pumped over for 3 months to enhance aromatic complexity and texture.

Serving Hints
This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with fish and shellfish, from lobster and crab to oysters or clams-on-the-half shell, as well as fresh vegetable salads, cerviche or pan-seared fish.
