    August 15, 2019 - This Pinot Grigio-based blend avoids the common problems of this varietal (i.e., too bland, watery, sweet, and/or over-priced). Instead, this wine is bursting with flavor, energy, and complexity, all for a cool $30. I've said it before but I'll say it again: Massican makes delicious and unique wines, regardless of the price (but the price makes them even more impressive).

    Light yellow in color and medium in body, the wine offers aromas of green apple, pear, and stone fruit. Tastes of grapefruit, lemon rind, gooseberry, and wet rocks, with a round and soft finish that is incredible for such a refreshing (read: bright acidity) wine. Better on second day, when it developed an orange marmalade note that gave the wine a beguiling creamy texture. Blend of 79% Pinot Grigio and 21% Greco. 12.5% alcohol. Drink in next few years.

    April 4, 2018 - As a lover of bright light whites this offering absolutely hits the spot. So enjoyable on a warm spring evening with lobster ravioli with tomatos in a pink sauce. It also went very well with a heavily flavored salad with a balsamic dressing. A great white blend this is easily consumed briskly. The Massican whites are always special.

    July 22, 2017 - Pale yellow, slightly cloudy, color. Peaches and honeysuckle nose. Tastes of lemon, lime, ginger and a big wallop of saline mineral flavors (oysters, seaweed, crushed stones). Nice long finish in which spicy ginger notes predominate. Very layered, different, absolutely delicious.
