Matetic EQ produces this Pinot Noir following organic and biodynamic procedures. It carries an appealing aroma of strawberry, light raspberry, sweet cherries and plum. On the palate it is medium to rather dry but it is smooth and medium weighted with notes of oak, vanilla, cherries and raspberries.
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 organic Pinot Noir is well suited to a poultry based dish or game meats like venison or veal.
