Matetic EQ Chardonnay 2009 (San Antonio)

Tasted 31.07.11, 15% ABV. About £15.99 UK retail. This is a superb wine, one of the best Chilean wines I have tasted this year. Matetic is a relatively new 'boutique' winery but has quickly moved to close to the top of the Chilean tree. This wine is made from their oldest vine plots (circa. 1999). If you are a classic Burgundy drinker, you may not appreciate the style so much but you will acknowledge the quality. Soft yellow colour. This is a rich, fruity Chilean style for sure but elegant and multi-dimensional too. Beautiful citrus, tropical fruits and vanilla on the nose, in the mouth it's all fresh acidity with butterscotch. Long finish. From 2011, 18/20
