Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from Matetic is unique. It opens with a red bell pepper, tomato leaf, celery and mild grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lychee. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced mild asparagus and mild yellow grapefruit blend with notes lime zest and saline along with a hint of mango. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with cherrystones on the half shell or grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken and Mark

Winemaker Notes: Pale yellow color with delicate green hues. The complex nose is dominated by citrus and tropical aromas like mango, papaya and grapefruit peel, with nuances of light herbal notes and the typical crispness that this variety shows in coastal cool climates. The palate is fresh and vivid, crisp and concentrated. Very fruity, with a salty mineral dimension leading to a lingering finish. Serve at 50-54° F. This is ideally served with raw fish dishes like ceviche, tuna carpaccio, sushi and oysters.
