Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc is light yellow in color with green hints, in the nose mineral and spicy accents with citrus notes such as grapefruit and tropical fruit. Well balanced on the palate with natural acidity and freshness. The wine has a balanced and elegant aftertaste.
The grapes are harvested by hand from several selected vineyards. Some bunches of grapes are pressed whole. Those from other plots are destemmed and given a cooled skin contact of approximately 5 hours for extra aroma and flavor expression. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 30 days with subsequent contact with the 'lie' (settled yeast cells) for 3 months.
Perfect for appetizers or fresh vegetable salads and sea food, especially ceviche (fresh raw fish marinated in lime juice) or fish “a la plancha” (grilled on a metal plate). A classic combination is Sauvignon Blanc with clam chowder: the acid in the wine cuts through the creaminess of the soup to leave a refreshing, clean feeling on the palate.
Serve at 10 °C (50 °F).
Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc Matetic is a delicious Chilean white wine of Viña Matetic from Chile. This wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
The Matetic family exchanged Croatia for Chile in 1892 because of all the misery in the Balkans. As it turns out, that was a blessing for the wine world. After setting up several fruit and cattle breeding companies, the now 4th Chilean generation also decided to show their passion and enthusiasm in viticulture. Viña Matetic was born in 1999. Jorge and Cristian Matetic hired various wine-growing specialists to make wines in a biologically dynamic way as a team in the cool San Antonio and Casablanca Valleys. In short, this is the most pure and human and nature-friendly form of viticulture. Due to the proximity of the ocean, the valleys enjoy a moderate micro-climate with a difference between day and night temperatures of around 20 degrees during the growing season. Light breezes ensure cooling and good air circulation, allowing fruit to ripen optimally and moisture to cause hardly any fungi and diseases. On the poor soil of granite and weathered granite, red clay and dark earth as a top layer, the planted grape varieties thrive particularly well. The limited rainfall (around 485 mm per year) mainly falls during the winter season. Beautiful Chilean wines with a nod to the sophisticated producers in Europe.
