750 ML


Product Description

This much maligned wine, said to be the highest selling in Greece, is made from Roditis, Sideritis and other white varieties. It is blended for the consistency for which it has been known for nearly a century. Summer wine and distinctly ethnic, by any measure, we found much better aromas and cleaner flavors than we have found in exported versions. There is some peachiness in its fruit, straw in its color and herbal notes. The finish was surprisingly upscale. A new US importer may solve the storage and handling problems the plagued the wine in the past.


Varietal: White

Region: Greece

Region Description:

Greece is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago where wine was produced on a household or communal basis. At that time wine was exported to Europe as a treasured drink, but now days it is competing in a world market. In the 1960's Retsina put Greece back on the map and became their national beverage. Important Regions Include Macedonia, Patras, Santorini, Samos, Crete, and the Agean Islands.
