2019 Sauvignon Blanc

The 2019 Matthews Sauvignon Blanc was crafted using Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from select vineyards in Washington State, located on the Royal Slope of the Columbia Valley and the southern slopes of the Rattlesnake Mountains of the Yakima Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the fruit was hand-harvested in the early mornings between September 4th and 25th. Upon arriving at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and both whole cluster and de-stemmed pressed. It was then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks (93%) and French oak barrels (7%) before being bottled and released. Only 1,450 cases were produced.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromatics of lemon drop, lime peel, honeycomb, honeysuckle blossoms, as well as a chalky minerality. Swirling adds peach pit and lychee with wafting green notes of gooseberry and fragrant fresh herbs. The palate has great polish and weight with a touch more fruit sweetness than the nose suggests. Finishes classically dry and pithy with some mineral nuance that makes it irresistible.
