Top Greek Whites for Summer 2013

7. Lyrarakis Dafni (2011)

A bit soapy, and stony, and slighty chemical smelling in a cherry, melon, banana peel and sweet gum sort of way. this smells faintly of balsam with a bit of bone meal thrown in for good measure. After having said all that, this does smell good. Low and broad on the palate with integrated acidity supporting unusual grapefruit, strawberry and chalky mineral flavors all wrapped up in a balsam and dried floral cast. Decidedly different and rather exciting. I’d like to pair this up with some tandoori chicken and see what it does for a living. 88pts
