A blend of roditis and malagousia, this is fresh and light, with orange blossom scents and green peach flavor, the texture satiny but not heavy.

Crushable Whites

Vibrant, fresh, fruity – all signs, price included, point to a perfect summer wine. It’s made by Kir-Yianni, owned by the Boutari family, one of the oldest and most respected producers of fine wine in Greece. Note: one bottle will not be enough.

Wine: Paranga White

Vintage: 2011

A 100% Roditis-based white wine showing a fragrant aroma of melon, citrus, white flowers, almond and a hint of anise. Mid-weight and slightly viscous on the palate, its flavours of mineral, citrus, melon and a hint of vanilla fade slowly on the long, memorable finish.

The 2009 PETRA is 100% Roditis. Normally a well priced and rather attractive Northern Greek bottling of an indigenous grape, it shows well again in this year, a more difficult vintage for much of Greece. Rather full and penetrating in its youth, relatively speaking, considering that this is a rather delicate grape typically, this is aromatic, clean and beautifully balanced. It is a pleasure to drink at the moment and actually seems a bit mouth-coating as it warms up, lingering more than I thought that it could. Just drink it young. It is always possible these will hold gracefully for a few years, but drinking them as young and fresh as possible is a lot safer. It is great right now. Drink now-2012.

Herbaceous white wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Albarino, Roditis and more
This charming wine from northeast Greece is made from Roditis, the grape most often used in resin-scented Retsina. It fascinates with aromas of chive, pine and lemon zest. The flavors are savory, fresh and bright, with an almost pine-sap oily texture, and a slight bitter-almond finish. At Woodland Hills Wine Co. and K & L Wine Merchants, about $13
