2019Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Sold Out

The 2019 Matthews Reserve Sauvignon Blanc was crafted exclusively from one vineyard in the Yakima Valley AVA of Washington State. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were cultivated at one cluster per shoot for maximum concentration. They were then hand-harvested in the early mornings between September 4th - September 25th, 2019. Upon arriving at the winery, the fruit was cluster sorted and whole cluster pressed before being fermented in a combination of 56% small concrete eggs and 44% French oak puncheons. The resulting wine was kept in both the concrete eggs and 860L French oak puncheons for 11 months. Following over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team, the wine was bottled in July of 2020, producing only 335 cases.

Tasting Notes

Intense notes of lemon rind, lychee, grapefruit, and under-ripe pineapple. Swirling adds green guava, fresh spice, and herbs. The palate is vibrant, angular, and structured. Delivering citrus, wet stone minerality and lifted finish. A sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc that reveals itself over time.

Food Pairing Recommendations

Red king crab, scallions and Sambal Louie salad

Awards & Accolades

"The 2019 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc includes slightly more Semillon (11%) and spent 10 months in a combination of concrete eggs and French oak. Honeyed white grapefruit, crushed citrus, and chalky mineral notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with wonderful purity, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's a step up over the classic Sauvignon Blanc and should have 7-8 years of longevity."

"The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a gorgeous new bottling by Aryn Morell. Ripe gooseberry and lemon zest tones collide with minerals and shades of wet stone on the palate. Complex and delicious to savor now, this also has some good cellaring potential."
