2019 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc, Matetic, Casablanca Valley, Chile

Regular price £14.99
"Matetic's Sauvignon Blanc has a great quality/price ratio... 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." The Wine Advocate

"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." James Suckling

"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." Tim Atkin
