Steve Matthiasson considers winemaking just a natural extension of farming. Both himself and his wife (Jill) have both worked for in the sustainable agriculture and local food movement many years, and in 2003 they started Matthiasson Wines which is completely based around those values. Their wines are classical expressions of different grape varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla Gialla and Refosco and regardless of the variety the wines are made with a holistic approach and made in a refreshing style, made to complement food, and are always moderate in alcohol.

Tasting Note:
The 2013 White Wine has incredible intensity of fruit and is a blend of roughly 55% Sauvignon blanc, 25% Ribolla Gialla, 15% Semillon, and 5% Tocai friulano.

According to Steve the the Sauvignon blanc brings a clean fresh citrusy acidity and some tropical character. The Ribolla Gialla brings seashell minerality, nuttiness, and structure to the blend. The Semillon contributes viscosity and waxiness that adds gravity and weight. The Tocai friulano adds spicy aromatic notes. The acidity and fruit expression is balanced by a rich lees character and a faint backdrop of creamy oak. There is interplay in the wine between lightness and richness, and focus and complexity. 

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
