Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Matanzas Creek opens with a match stick and grapefruit like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic, crisp and yet nicely coats the mouth. The flavor profile is a tart yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality. I also detected some lemon and Anjou pear flavors. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This Sauvignon Blanc would be perfect with oysters and clam casino. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Expressive and bursting with aromas of white grapefruit, pumelo, nectarine and lemon thyme, hints of fresh oregano and yellow guava finish out the profile. Crisp in texture with bright acidity, the Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc utilizes our entire breadth of winemaking techniques to create this beautiful wine.
