Established in 1999, Matetic is owned and operated by Jorge and Cristian Matetic. The biodynamically farmed, certified organic vineyards are located in Rosario Valley, a subdivision of San Antonio Valley. There are two distinct types of soil in the valley on the hillsides the soil is red-brick in color, thin, with a superficial layer of clay and decomposed granite below. On the valley floor, the soil composition has a deeper layer of granite, red clay on top over a layer of darker colored soil. The fruit is hand-picked and estate bottled. Winemaker Paula Cardena Saez began as an assistant for Errazuriz and William Cole Vineyards. She is assisted by winemaker Julio Bastias and consultant Ken Bernards.

Tasting notes
Complex aromas of violet, olives, damp earth, leather and chocolate are followed by sweet velvety tannins, fresh acidity and an extended finish.

Technical notes
Syrah clones 174 and 300 were sourced from two parcels planted on a nearly flat plain to deep, colluvial soil. Following a six day cold soak, the must was fermented and the wine aged for 18 months in French oak, and 12 months in bottle.
