2010 Maron Kikones White Wine

With temps out here on the East Coast tipping routinely into three digits, this Greek wine is a really nice summery quaff. Quite citrusy nose of lemon and grapefruit from this indigenous Greek varietal. The grapefruit follows thru on the palate, with additional flavors of peach and apple, even a hint of vanilla, marked overall by a tart acidity that gives the wine balance. Finishes cleanly, Very pleasant. Try with saganaki (grilled halloumi cheese – it doesn’t melt) or grilled shrimp or squid. Highly Recommended (90-96). GPT
