2019 Sauvignon Blanc
About Matthew Fritz
Founded by winemaker and entrepreneur Matthew Bonnano, Matthew Fritz
wines are companion wines to his Napa Valley flagship Cabernet Sauvignon
BonAnno. Matthew Fritz was founded on a few simple principles: Seek out and
source fruit from top North Coast vineyards, let the fruit stand on its own
through a pure, clean winemaking process, and ultimately, ensure every bottle
is a true representation of both the variety and appellation.
Northern California’s 2019 season was near picture-perfect and considered classic. Just the right amount of early heat in the spring to acclimate the grapes was followed by mild temperatures that continued throughout the season and offered superior flavor development. Late rains in May also benefited many growers. A steady string of warm weather carried through to September leading to long hang times, even ripening, and distinctive flavor development.
The 2019 Mathew Fritz Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of vineyards from Carneros and Sonoma Coast AVA’s.
Renowned winemaker, Jim Milone, crafts, blends and bottles Matthew Fritz in
Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Jim grew up in the vineyards of his
grandfather’s winery in Mendocino County and currently lives in Northern
Sonoma. His excellent relationships with wineries and growers throughout the
North Coast of California are invaluable to our vineyard sourcing.
The wine is a pale straw color. Aromas are accented by lemon zest and crisp golden apples, with a touch of spice and floral notes. The palate is textured, yet lively and fresh with a crisp finish.
