Greek White Wine
Perfect at any time...
White wines are very similar to their red cousins produced in Greece. There are different grape varieties, one of which is Roditus, a very nice grape coming from the Southern region in Greece. In recent years, there has been some partnering taking place with Western vineyards. Something I enjoy is the production of a wine with Aleppo pine resin. This particular type of pine tree produces a resin. After fermenting the grapes, a little bit of this resin from the pine tree is added, and you are left with a very distinctive and wonderful flavour.
