Cabernet Sauvignon CORRALILLO from Matetic, DO Valle del Maipo-Chile

This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the best vineyards of Maipo Alto, characterised by the Andean climate influence and alluvial soils. The grapes were hand-picked and processed in the gravity flow winery, searching for a great body and a sense of place. 

The wine was kept for 16 months in French oak barrels, respecting the natural rhythms of its evolution. 

This Cabernet Sauvignon is bright ruby red in colour with violet inked hints. The nose is immensely fruity, with spicy and distinctive balsamic and chocolate notes. A concentrated, rich palate with round tannins leads to a long and juicy aftertaste.

 

Winemaker: Matetic

The Matetic family has a history of settling in new territory and making a success of agriculture. In 1892, the current members’ ancestors made the long journey by sea from the Croatian coast to Punta Arenas on the southern tip of Chile. They soon acquired large haciendas for sheep and dairy farming. It was only in 1999 that the fourth generation of Chilean Matetic made the move into winemaking.

After a detailed study of the terroir, Jorge Matetic Hartard and his relatives decided to plant vineyards in a previously overlooked side valley of the San Antonio appellation – Rosario. Just 15km from the Pacific Ocean, the rolling hills of Rosario Valley benefits from cooling sea breezes and huge daily swings in temperature. Well drained, quartz-sandy soil requires vines to dig their roots deep into the ground (up to four metres) to find water and nutrients, making for low yields and high-quality fruit.

Eco-friendly practices are at the heart of everything the Matetic team do, from the fact they are certified organic, sustainable and biodynamic, to the design of their winery, which deliberately blends in to its surroundings and is structured in such a way that all winemaking procedures are conducted naturally using gravity rather than pumps.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
