Since 1993, Matthews Cellars has produced a Semillon dominant white wine blend. Although Sauvignon Blanc has typically been included in the blend, it has never been substantial enough to bottle on its own. Due to lower crop yields and deficit irrigation at Klipsun Vineyard, we now have what Matthew believes to be the best possible source of Sauvignon Blanc. The juice was then fermented in 100% stainless steel at 56 degrees for 97 days. No malo-lactic fermentation occurred before the wine was lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
This classic French style wine has great acidity and a lush mouth-feel. Although made to pair with food, this wine serves well as an aperitif for warm weather evenings.
