Massican’s varietal Sauvignon Blanc is lean, as always. It’s pale, and its fragrance suggests earthy yellow citrus fruits, grass, light flowers. The midsection and finish are lemon-limey, quite sharp. This is not a tropical wine, not fruity (although there is fruit). Mostly there is acid and a spare, silvan, moonlight-through-birch-trees luminance.
The wine likes salads, slaws, fresh goat cheese, lemon-dressed fish, sushi, raw things. It also likes bottle age.
