EQ QUARTZ EQUALS QUALITY

EQ QUARTZ EQUALS QUALITY

EQ stands for Equilibrio, the Spanish word for balance. Matetic’s Rosario vineyard, located in the tiny San Antonio Valley appellation, just 19 km from the Pacific Ocean, was selected for planting Chardonnay vines in 1999. Farming is both organic and bio-dynamic and is certified as such. Since then, the granite soils, rich in Quartz minerals, have been yielding this exquisite example of quality Chardonnay. The cool climate provides the right acidity and freshness. Fermentation with native yeast in French oak barrels and aging on the lees for a period of 11 months contribute to the richness that make this wine so unique and full of nuances. Subtle yellow in colour, the nose presents us with aromas reminiscent of citrus and tropical fruits together with notes of honey and a delicate saline note, unique to this vineyard’s terroir. The wine is concentrated on the palate with good volume and balance, while the pronounced acidity adds liveliness and freshness with a long, elegant finish. Why not pair it with everyone’s favourite during the Christmas season, roast turkey with a sage-accented bread stuffing. Pass the gravy boat, please.
