Massican new releases
2019 Massican Hyde Chardonnay...$49.99
The 2019 Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay from Massican is once again sensational. Sourced from a parcel of Musque clone planted in 1992, this gorgeous Chardonnay opens to a fresh aromatic profile of Meyer lemon, starfruit and green apple, accented by fresh minerality, crushed rocks and floral nuances which add wonderful complexity. On the palate this is extremely focused and liner with incredible overall precision and balance. It goes on to impress with its layered flavors of citrus and orchard fruits, along with tropical and stony character which are all wrapped up in a beautiful textured mouthfeel that flows right into the mouthwatering finish. While this is already outstanding it should continue to evolve and continue to provide drinking pleasure for at least a decade.
Rated 94/100 International Wine Report
2019 Massican Sauvignon Blanc...$33.99
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is once again a brilliant release from Massican. It begins with a gorgeous aromatic profile of lime, passion fruits and green apple, along with hints of gooseberry, fresh herbs and wild flowers that all take shape beautifully. On the palate this is bright and vibrant, with excellent depth of flavor as well as outstadnding overall balance, with laser-like focus and a beam of fresh acidity running through its core. The finish is seamless with incredible precision. Overall this is a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc that is already fantastic, but it will also be interesting to watch this evolve over the next few years.
