Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley 2018

Product description

Savory and broad, this wine is bursting with vibrant and complex aromas and flavors. Kiwi and Key lime notes are strung delicately together against a background of lemon verbena and hints of citrus blossom. This wine has great tension - its elements are highly articulated, with layered acidity.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    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.

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    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.
