A powerful and complex wine, Journey Sauvignon Blanc offers a symphony of aromas and flavors of white peach, grapefruit, lemon blossom, and honey suckle. Smooth and polished, the finish is long and elegant with intriguing notes of exotic spice and ginger tea.
The Journey Sauvignon Blanc offers flavors from the Knights Valley AVA and is fermented in 50% foudres, 25% neutral French oak, 17% concrete egg and 8% neutral puncheons. Here at Matanzas Creek we pair this wine with Island Creek Oysters, seared salmon, baked trout, lemon chicken or classic chevre.
For the past four decades, Matanzas Creek Winery has focused on creating site-expressive wines.
Throughout the years our methodology has remained the same: utilize a range of vineyard clones and fermentation vessels, and explore new farming and winemaking techniques, to produce thoughtfully crafted, expressive, and balanced wines.
Today, all Matanzas Creek Winery estate vineyards are sustainably farmed and are certified under the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.
