if you're flirting with Greek wines but haven't consumated the relationship yet, this is the place to start. Sourced from the volcanic island of Santorini, it's rich, spicy, yet unoaked, with plenty of weight, notes of pear and fresh hay and a thrilling backbone of stony acidity. Like a cross between a Chablis and a Rhône blend, but with a herbal, Mediterranean twist that is all its own.
