Sonoma County AVA

n 2015, the Sonoma County experienced a warm growing season so grape growers in the area had to work hard to maintain decent acid levels. Happily Matanzas Creek did a good job retaining acidity in this Sauvignon blanc, which is a blend of almost 40 different blocks of fruit. Each was picked, fermented and aged separately, then combined by winemaker Marcia Torres-Forno into this little beauty.

With aromas of peaches and white nectarines combined with ripe pineapple, we found our mouths watered before each sip. And in our glasses, this wine was crisp and clean with tropical flavors of passionfruit and pineapple. We tasted those white nectarines too. This Sauvignon blanc was quite tart with a long finish and we think it would pair beautifully with grilled corn on the cob, panzanella salad with feta or grilled romaine salad with blue cheese dressing. The winery tasting notes suggest oysters, which is spot-on too!

SRP $22.

    Yum – you had me at ripe pineapple. I never know how to choose wine – I think I’ve just drank so much bad wine in my 20s that now I’m totally confused. Thanks for the pairing suggestions!

      Marlynn- it did seem like a really versatile wine and we really enjoyed it. And quite a lot of work in a $22 bottle 😉
