"The 2013 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc has to be one of the finest Sauvignons I tasted from Chile. The 2013 was a cool vintage in Casablanca, and produced a wine that has fresh, marine and herbal aromas, all of them in a subtle, elegant way.

"The 2013 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc has to be one of the finest Sauvignons I tasted from Chile. The 2013 was a cool vintage in Casablanca, and produced a wine that has fresh, marine and herbal aromas, all of them in a subtle, elegant way. It is both fresh and ripe, with a light to medium-bodied palate showing very good acidity, compact with clean, delineated flavors (the archetypal gooseberries) and good underlying minerality making it very supple and tasty. Somehow this wine seems more complete and nuanced than most other Sauvignons I tasted. I’d love to see how it ages, as the balance promises a bright future. Great! I could hardly believe the price – what a bargain! Drink now-2018."

"Julio Bastias is the winemaker of Matetic Vineyards, which is in between the Casablanca and San Antonio appellations. I met with a bunch of winemakers from the zone and asked them to bring a couple of bottles each, and he showed up with bottled samples of the soil from each of the vineyards from the wines he brought along. The property has over 20,000 hectares but only 160 hectares are planted with vineyards, which are worked by biodynamic principles and have been fully certified since 2003. With such great wines here, I should try to visit them next time. One of the names that form the new Chile."

"Smooth and fresh, this is a citrus-scented sauvignon, its herbal spice adding details that slowly fill out the wine’s complexity. A classic coastal white, this comes from a vineyard planted in 1997 about five miles from the Pacific."
