2014 Sauvignon Blanc

The Matthews Sauvignon Blanc is a wine for the connoisseur and the consumer alike. A wine that you could sit and deconstruct, or simply sit on your patio and enjoy. It delivers big, ripe flavors, heavy on tropical fruits, but layered with spicy, green aromatics and an abundance of food-loving acidity. Sauvignon Blanc is the most prominent of the white Bordeaux varietals, where it’s hailed for its bright grassy flavors and herbal aromatics. If you move inland to France’s equally-famed Loire region, you get earthier, fruit forward profiles, with a touch of chalky minerality. Sauvignon Blanc grown in Washington runs the gamut between both extremes, and we aim for the middle. We’ve been very careful to maintain a specific and consistent style for the Matthews Sauvignon Blanc that is big and ripe but still balanced and complex.

Tasting Notes

Warm tropical yellow tree fruits. Pineapple, yellow guava with citrus and grapefruit rind. A big, rich tropical style with fruit musk and spicy citrus notes. The palate is dense but more restrained than the nose. Polished with enough sweet fruit to serve chilled.

Additional Information about this vintage

Food Pairings: Artichoke dip, grilled asparagus, fresh tomatoes, spicy tapas, raw oysters, black cod. The Sauvignon Blanc is summer in a glass, and it loves summer foods. It’s ideal before dinner with some artichoke dip, creamy cheese or grilled asparagus. It’s a great friend of fresh tomatoes, but substantial enough to pair with chicken or spicy tapas. It brings out the very best in raw oysters, and it’s the perfect sip between bites of scallop or black cod, but it’s equally at home around a communal bowl of steamed clams. Whether you want to really focus on your meal, or just have a tasty glass of something while watching the sun go down, this is a reliably rewarding summer wine to reach for.
