The Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, refreshing and elegant, with the perfect amount of acidity and minerality. In other words, a go-to wine for fall and holiday sipping and dining. Wow your diners when you offer a ceviche of snapper, tequila, lime and grilled sweet peppers with their first glasses. Homemade guacamole and white corn chips will only add to their elation. How about fish and chips? Simply grilled chicken with roasted, lemony potatoes will pair seamlessly with this EQ. For a light supper or lunch, make it a salad with thin-sliced radishes, grape tomatoes, toasted pecans, avocado, topped with grilled, garlicky XL shrimp. Drizzle with a fresh tarragon vinaigrette and everybody goes home happy. If you've got room after the entree, serve a soft Boursin cheese and your favorite crackers. Bon apetit winelovers! 

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "The just-bottled 2018 EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc has a mixture of citrus and herbal aromas. It's from a cool vintage, quite normal for the coastal part of Casablanca, pretty much like 2013, with good yields and no frost or other issues. The palate is tasty and fresh, with great texture, very focused and clean flavors and a salty finish, the signature of the sea and the granite. This is a bargain—and one of their finest harvests. It should develop nicely in bottle. Drink 2018-2023." Oct 2018

The name comes from the word EQUILIBRIO (Spanish word for Balance) and represents our commitment to nature, by pursuing a perfect balance between the grapevines, soil and climate of our vineyards. EQ offers balanced wines with outstanding quality and elegance. Delivering great complexity with nuanced layers of flavors, EQ wines have a fine structure that guarantees a great aging potential."

Winery:  "Pale yellow color with delicate green hues. The complex nose is dominated by citrus and tropical aromas like mango, papaya and grapefruit peel, with nuances of light herbal notes and the typical crispness that this variety shows in coastal cool climates. The palate is fresh and vivid, crisp and concentrated. Very fruity, with a salty mineral dimension leading to a lingering finish.

Serve at 50-54° F. This Sauvignon Blanc is ideally served with fish, especially raw fish dishes like ceviche, tuna carpaccio, sushi, oysters, scallops, salads, and goat or blue cheeses."
