2020 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

The 2020 Matthews Reserve Sauvignon Blanc was crafted with the sauvignon blanc coming from Boushey and Stillwater Creek vineyards. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were cultivated at one cluster per shoot for maximum concentration. They were then hand-harvested in the early fall mornings of 2020. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit was cluster sorted and whole cluster pressed before being fermented in a combination of 97% small concrete eggs and 3% French oak puncheons. The resulting wine was kept in both the concrete eggs and 860L French oak puncheons for 9 months. Following over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team, the wine was bottle in June of 2021, producing only 178 cases.
