Afianes Begleri. Intriguing with a rosé like nose at first approach then leesy muscadet-like lemon and acid, sometimes apple, and a blue cheese/bilic aroma on the residuals. Somewhat subtle and complex and refreshing

Super low acidity, no tannins at all, lightest wine I've ever tried. Interesting color, ripe apples with high mineral aftertaste. Earthy. I didn't find that it went well it seafood though, sort of just better on its own.

Only with Greek food. White pepper on the end? Oxidation gives it Sherry-like notes. Smells desertish

Dionysian wine. Salinity like whoa, refreshing zest, hints of funk that keep it interesting.
