Tasting Notes

Classic California Sauvignon Blanc taken to the next level - aromas of lemon zest, grapefruit, green peppers, and wet stones. The palate starts out textural and plush, but a strong and fresh acidity brings a refreshing burst to the palate. Flavors of lemongrass, gooseberry, ripe pears, with at touch of honeycomb on the finish.

About

Matanzas Creek is located in the remote, but breathtakingly beautiful Bennett Valley region of Sonoma County. Since its launch in 1977, the winery has built its reputation on Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot – two varieties that thrive in Sonoma’s temperate climate. Matanzas Creek also produces limited quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux-style reds. All of the winery’s fruit comes from sustainably-farmed, estate vineyards scattered throughout the mild interior and cool coastal AVAs of the county. In addition to its wines, Matanzas Creek is also famous for their spectacular lavender gardens.
