Matetic EQ produces this Syrah using the best grapes, from two specific biodynamically farmed plots, is released in limited numbers under the Matetic label. It’s a fragrant full-bodied celebration of red fruit with jammy, chocolaty tones and a finish of leather, herbs and spice.
Biodynamic viticulture is one strut in the tripod of eco-friendly practices the Matetic Vineyard follows in its winemaking - it is certified organic and sustainable as well as biodynamic. Regarding the Rosario Valley as a single organism, the team works hard to maintain the health of the ground (using Rudolf Steiner’s preparations of quartz, manure, herbs etc in cow horns but only using indigenous materials), the crops and the varied animal life in the ecosystem. Grape pomace is added to compost from the restaurant to be reused in the Matetic vineyards, as is water which has been used to clean barrels.
This Syrah is well suited to a good strong beef dish or red spicy sauce pasta dishes.
