Greece — Peloponnese • $13.95 • WD Score 88/100

Roditis, one of the most widely grown grapes in Greece, is pink-skinned, but is used to make white wine. It is sometimes added to the blends for retsina, but is usually bottled as a single varietal wine. This is a fine example: pale straw in colour, with a rather neutral nose with a leesy undercurrent that backs hints of white flowers and apple and lemon fruit. The wine is fully dry, with modest alcohol, and a lighter weight. The lively, savoury palate is tinged by the lemon-apple fruit, that trails into the firm, salty finish. Savoury, quaffable, and a great value! • Tasted 2018-01-20 • LCBO id#261610 • Find it at your nearest LCBOBRAND NEW DAY WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
