Top Greek Whites for Summer 2013

5. San Gerassimo Robola of Cephalonia (NV)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Previously available for $18.99
Super fine floral accents frame brilliant mineral notes on a nose that is has a touch of mustiness to it as well as some cool cactus pad and almost cucumber like fruit. There's a faint hint of sweetness here that adds some fruitiness and roundness in the mouth but this is not a fruity wine and even with the sweetness id decidedly mineral driven in the mouth with the same compact, cool fruit that was obvious on the nose. There's a fair amount of dry extract here, lending some mouthgrab and a touch of astringency to the texture on the backend which leads to a lovely, long mineral and Meyer lemon finish. An intriguing wine with excellent character that recalls Fiano a bit. 89pts
