This is a white wine made from the Roditis grape which, depending who you ask, is the most (or second most) planted white grape in Greece. It is a natural and Demeter certified Biodynamic wine that comes in at 13% abv. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is very pretty (and a bit funky) with quince, sweet fresh (Laconian?) Thyme, and slight orange peel. Medium bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, it is very good but different from the nose. Minerals and crushed shells. Nice finish. This wine is made for food! Of course, traditional Greek foods such as tzatziki (yogurt, cucumber and garlic), or melitzanosalata (eggplant) would be great, but also sea food or even pizza. Drink over the next couple of years.
