Matanzas Creek's signature style of 'non grassy' Sauvignon Blanc is achieved by blending Sauvignon Musque (a clonal cousin of Sauvignon Blanc) which balances the wine's natural acidity, strengthens the mid-palate and provides a longer finish. They also ferment and age 21% of the wine in very fine grain French Oak barrels to preserve the fresh aromatic qualities of these varietals.
Preserving the aromatics of this grape throughout the winemaking process is challenging, but they are able to continue to craft a truly refined Sauvignon Blanc rich with character.
