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.
