2019 Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley

2019 Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley...$13.99
Compare to $15.49 at Total Wine and More
Exhibits ripe honeydew melon, passion fruit and ruby grapefruit with complimenting flavors of fresh pineapple, guava, lemon blossom, wild lily and a touch of honey suckle.

The 2019 growing season began a bit later than normal leading to a later harvest. For the first time in a few years, Marcia harvested all but one pick after Labor Day. Lovely, warm but mild weather made the 2019 growing season a dream, slowly ripening without any heat spikes, unlike previous vintages. After a wet winter and spring, the water supply was aplenty. It was a spectacular vintage that will certainly rival the best in history
