Salty with citrus and peach notes, a little bit of an almondy note on the palate. It was...fine. I ain’t running back.

Seemed kind of flabby but might have been the age/vintage. Got almond croissant and not much else! 🥐

The nose sports fennel and seashore, with citrus notes. It smells a little like Vermentino. On the palate, minerals and lemon lead the way. The acidity is somewhat muted but there’s a great, lengthy finish.

Sea breeze, lemon verbena, green melon, mineral (hint of flunky) and an almond/vanilla note.

Greek salad was one of the first foods I learned to “cook” for myself, and it’s still a go to for me: salty, crisp, simple, refreshing, much like this delightful Greek wine. And most of the time, that’s more than enough. Made from the much maligned Savatiano grape (for its unfortunate association with retsina). It reminds me more of a Gavi, (lower acid) Chablis, or Soave than Assyrtiko.

Also, the bird on the label is wearing a bowler hat which is fun.

My....how the Greeks are currently nailing it. A terrific paring with chicken gyro and homemade Tzatziki. Excellent $13 QPR.
