Additional Wine Information

Story
Viticulture in Chile, like in California, has shifted from warm regions, where it's easy to cultivate wine grapes, to cooler coastal areas, where both the challenges and the rewards are greater. The San Antonio Valley, a tiny area between the larger Maipo Valley and the chilly Pacific, is an excellent example of this westward push. Running perpendicular to the ocean, the long and narrow San Antonio Valley collects cold winds that stream through the vines. The closer to the sea vineyards are located, the more time the fruit spends in the cold, a perfect scenario for white grapes. Of Croatian origin, the Matetics came to the area over 100 years ago and are now one of the most forward-thinking winemaking families in Chile, especially in their vineyard work. They grow all their vines organically and are working toward biodynamic certification. The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc were grown on reddish clay and well-draining decomposed granite in the Rosario Valley subregion of San Antonio.
Sense
Pure, tangy aromas of lemon and lime have hints of grapefruit and pineapple plus a lightly floral edge.
Savor
This zesty white is bright, crisp and exuberantly flavored, with notes of grapefruit, quince and gooseberry. Dry and medium-bodied, the wine has a lovely minerality underlying its ripe fruit flavors and a penetrating citrus-inflected finish.
Serve
Sauvignon Blanc and goat cheese are a classic match, and with its ripe flavors, the Matetic will be fantastic with nearly any light dish incorporating this tangy cheese. Serve the wine as an aperitif with dried apricots topped with a little chèvre, or pour it alongside a warm goat cheese salad. For more substantial fare, look to fish and shellfish. The wine's fruity palate suggests flavorings like a fruit salsa, although fresh herbs also work well with Sauvignon Blanc. Feel free to add a little heat to the food; this white's crisp acidity will help it stand up to spicier fare.
Serving Instructions
Serve well chilled: refrigerate the bottle for 45 minutes before serving.
