Great acidity. Lots of citrus. Delicious.

I must say I was a little surprised by our visit to Matthiasson. It’s amazing the amount of wines, varietals and bottling’s they make in a extremely tiny space. As well, the old school wine equipment that produce some very nice to high-end wines. It’s amazing they pull off what they do with facilities so far from the definition of a modern winemaking facility by today’s Napa standards. This says very good things about their staff.

Also, my notes will not be as detailed as I like...our host was speed tasting.

On the nose, lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers.

Full body and a little waxy. Lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers. Nice subtle volcanic minerals and soft chalkiness. Good acidity with a nice finish.

Have most of you picked up on grape shears woven into some of their label artwork?

Photos of; their Estate vines, their tasting room, barrel area and stainless tank area.

Really feeling this tonight! Purchased at the winery last year. Quite tight up front, but as it gets air and warms, really explodes out of the glass with a lush and complex aroma. Ripe lemon and lime, tree fruit, lychee and pineapple. Blooming white and yellow flowers. Sweet cream, graham cracker and spice. Palate is textured, with persistent acid from the SB, unctuousness from the semillon, and a softness from the oak. Finish is long and complex. I’d recommend drinking this with lighter food (veggies or poultry) so that it can really shine. Can’t wait to get some more!

One of the great white wines of California in my book. Green-gold in the glass, aromas of tropical, citrus and ripe stone fruit, nutty butterscotch, fresh grass, chamomile, somehow unctuous and light and fresh at the same time

Lime, golden apple, melon, and slightly oily packed with earthy funk.. Searing acidity.

Opened to kick off Father’s Day last week. Shout out to the WNH and the commemorative glasses produced by @Carl Fischer which were easy to hold while my youngest and I dominated the annual corn hole tournament 🏆🍷
This Matthiasson was firing! Herbal yet crisp and clean, green apple, nice weight and substantial mouthfeel 👍🏽

Textural, crisp, offering another side with each sip. Refreshing way to beat the summer heat while contemplating how fun this wine is in your glass. A little tight, needs some air to open up and really get expressive.

This is a Boudreaux Blanc type of thing. Nice and refreshing but a bit too acidic for me.
