Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

If you bought some of the fabulous 2018 Matetic EQ Coastlands Sauvignon Blanc from us last month, you will be happy to know that the 2019 vintage is equally as wonderful if not even better, and it's still $12.99 per bottle!

It is fresh and crisp with bracing minerality - something like a really superb Sancerre, but with a little more body and richness. The Wine Advocate agrees with us, rating it 93 points, saying: "Matetic's Sauvignon Blanc has a great quality/price ratio, and even the top-of-the-range 2019 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc sells for under $20. They want a Sauvignon for the table, one that combines freshness and volume. They fermented part of it in used barrels and concrete, and it matured with the lees for four months in barrique and concrete eggs. This is more restrained—not as aromatic, less herbal—but the palate is terribly juicy and mineral, focused and makes you salivate. It should work wonders with modern Peruvian gastronomy. 93 points."

We recommend serving it with Peruvian fish ceviche.
