Further Details

Organic, biodynamic and sustainable farming in the cool climate of the Casablanca Valley, north-west of Santiago yields this beautifully complex and supple Riesling.

The grapes are farmed organically and hand-picked, and the vineyards' cool climate and a gravity-flow winery mean that as much as possible of the natural freshness of the fruit is retained in the wine.

The wine is kept on its lees for three months and stirred regularly to lend volume, enhance its smooth texture and balance the bright, mineral acidity and citrus vibrancy of the fruit. Typical Riesling notes of petrol shimmer on the nose, along with floral and stone fruit aromas, and there's a hint of salinity in the full, complex flavours.

This is a first choice for fresh seafood, especially anything that has the iodine kiss of the sea, such as Irish oysters or seaweeds.

Critic Tim Atkin awarded the 2015 vintage of this wine 93/100, and considers the Matetics one of the leading producers in South America.
