"Already bottled, as it's a wine they sell quite fast, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Coastal EQ has seen a gradual increase in the percentage of wine that is fermented outside of stainless steel; some 20% of the volume is fermented in oak barrels (12%) and egg-shaped cement vats (10% in this 2015). The fruit comes from Casablanca from the last vineyard they planted in the Vallehermoso vineyard, close to the sea (some 12 kilometers) -- a windy and flat place that has great influence for the sea and gives less fruit (same number of bunches, but smaller), so it's naturally more concentrated. They search for a citric and herbal character with a topical hint, with notes of lime, grapefruit and gooseberries; it is clean in a style that focuses on the texture and the volume, nicely compensated by freshness and a finish with mineral, salty hints. Again, this is great coastal Sauvignon at bargain prices. 72,000 bottles produced."

"Matetic work in the San Antonio Valley, one of the cold climate zones where they were one of the first to produce Syrah. I met with winemaker Julio Bastías to taste through the portfolio of chiseled, delineated and pure wines with great acidity from their biodynamically farmed vineyards. They own 150 hectares of vines certified by Demeter spread in three different locations, where the soils are granitic but with different forms of granite. The focus is on the vineyard work, getting their soils alive and understanding and separating the wines by soil. These are cool climate, fresh, mineral wines. 600,000 bottles in total."

Excellent!

"This Sauv Blanc is one of the best value's on the market. The perfume is screeching nectarines, peach and gooseberry. Palette expresses limes, orange and citrus zest. It's taut and tense, just how a SB should be. Has a racy finish, and with 13.5% abv, it's tough to beat at this price."
