2018 Matanzas Creek Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1449269 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended with 7% Sémillon, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley opens youthfully shy to gooseberry, lychee, lime, bruised apple and candle smoke with a crushed stone streak. It's medium-bodied, rounded and with restrained fruits, finishing with bright acidity, lots of crushed rock minerality and texture. This is similar to white Bordeaux, and I'd be curious to see it with a couple of years of bottle age. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley (89% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Semillon, and the balance Sauvignon Musque) offers more melon, white peach, and pineapple notes in a richer, more fleshy, textured style. It still has good acidity, terrific purity of fruit, and a deliciously balanced profile that's already a joy to drink. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

The Sauvignon Blanc program at Matanzas Creek may not be new, but it may be producing some of the most exciting wines from the estate. It's an obsession for winemaker Marcia Torres Forno, who vinifies dozens of small lots of Sauvignon Blanc in order to hit just the right, delicate notes in the final blend. 15% neutral French oak.
