EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

On a hot almost-summer night this wine hits the spot! ☀️

It’s a Sauvignon Blanc from the Valle de Casablanca D.O. in Chile 🇨🇱 where the vines from which it hails receive cooling influences from the Pacific Ocean breezes, lending balance and preserving acidity. 🌊

It’s no wonder this wine is labeled EQ as in Equilibrio (the Spanish word for balance), because it offers a wonderful balance of ripe tropical fruit aromas and flavors with vibrant acidity and notable minerality. 🍍 🥭

The aromas and flavors are fresh, albeit ripe, generally tropical with passion fruit, guava, mango, underripe pineapple, also green apple, gooseberry, freshly cut grass, and wet slate.

It’s a perfect patio pairing and fun to explore the beauty of new world Sauvignon Blanc from this region.

It’s also a great value at $12.99. 👏👏👏👏👏

Matetic Vineyards, E.Q., Coastal Sauvignon Blanc, D.O. Valle de Casablanca, Viñedo Valle Hermoso, Chile. Vintage 2019. ABV 13.5%.

Corralillo Pinot Noir 2012

Funky nose, very much manure but then the flavors are completely different. Great for $25 — 6 years ago

EQ Limited Edition Valle Hermoso Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Another Cabo Costco find for under $15. I’m not a Pinot fan, didn’t have high hopes for a PN from Chile but was surprised by this wine, probably because it has more characteristics of a cab than a Pinot. — a year ago

San Antonio Valley Syrah 2012

Deep dark purple wine always turns me on. This or did its job. Spices, pepper and soil highlight this Syrah. Tannins in this wine were on the softer side of medium. It went lovely with lamb. — 3 years ago
