Winemaker Notes

Notes of fresh citrus, tropical fruits, and honeydew melon. Swirling brings up white tea, sweet green apple, and pineapple rind. The palate has vibrant acidity, good volume, and glossy polish. Flavors of pithy stone fruit and citrus linger on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 90
Vinous
The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc delivers ripe green apple and herbal tones on the palate, along with plenty of minerals and a soft mouthfeel. Enjoy this over the next several years.
JS 90
James Suckling

Aromas of sliced pear, green apple and lime leaf. Medium-bodied and rather soft and pretty on the palate. Smooth mouth-feel. Refreshing and bright. Drink now.

Matthews Winery Winery Image
Established in 1993, Matthews Winery is located in the heart of the Woodinville Wine Country. The boutique winery is owned by a local family and focuses on maintaining production of Bordeaux-style and single varietal vineyard-designated wines. Matthews uses grapes grown in Washington state from vineyards that have experience and respect for nature and its soil. The winery and winemaker, Aryn Morell, believe that there is a deep and tangible link between the vines, hills, winegrowers and winemakers, and carries this proof of affinity into every aspect of wine making—from the vineyard to the cellar, from the vine to the wine bottle. The numerous accolades we receive from trade and consumers alike are an undeniable proof and future motivation to us.

Horse Heaven Hills Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

"Surely this is Horse Heaven!”

Its wide prairies and rolling expanses led an early pioneer to proclaim that the region looked like “horse heaven,” and as a result, the area was appropriately named. Horse Heaven Hills is in south central Washington state, geographically bound on its northern border by the Yakima River and in the south, by the larger Columbia River.

Its proximity to the Columbia River contributes to a variety of climactic factors that dramatically affect its grapes. In particular, an increase in wind from changes in pressure along the river, which flows from the cool and wet Pacific Ocean, inland to Washington’s hot and arid plains, creates 30% more wind than there would be otherwise. These winds moderate temperatures, protect against mold and rot, reduce the risk of early and late season frosts, diminish canopy size and toughen grape skins.

The vineyards bordering the river are on steep, south-facing, well-exposed slopes, with well-drained, sandy-loam soils. But the soils of the appellation are diverse throughout, ranging from wind-blown sand and loess, Missoula Flood sediment, and rocky basalt. Horse Heaven Hills has an arid continental climate with elevations ranging from 200 to 1,800 feet.

The first vines of the appellation were planted in 1972 in an optimal spot now referred to as the Champoux Vineyard. Today it remains the source of some of Washington’s most desirable and expensive Cabernet Sauvignons. In fact, the appellation as a whole boasts many of Washington’s top scoring wines. Its primary grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Riesling.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
