2005 Lafazanis Estate Roditis White, Peleponnese

SKU #1032376

A Best Buy from the Wine Enthusiast: "Greek producers have a wealth of indigenous grapes that have adapted to the hot Mediterranean climate. Roditis, grown in the Peloponnese for centuries, retains acidity throughout the hot summer to make a refreshing wine that is great with food. This example, from a quality-minded Greek importer with temperature-controlled shipping, marries aromas of juicy peach with flavors of lemon, mineral, white stone fruits and a dash of mint, all in an acidic framework that makes this perfect for food. Finishes crisply, with a touch of oak spice." (11/06) From Wine Spectator: "Very minerally and pure-tasting, reminiscent of Riesling, with plenty of peach and spice flavors. Rich, creamy finish, with touches of honey. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,500 cases imported." (12/06)

Additional Information:



- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines.
