Originally hailing from the idyllic island of Santorini but now grown throughout Greece, the grape from which this wine is made—Assyrtico—makes top-quality whites. This Drama-grown wine starts with a nose of pear, honeysuckle and citrus (lemon, grapefruit) followed by like flavors on the palate. A spicy spin and pronounced acidity give it a refreshing quality that will pair well with ethnic cuisine and fresh seafood.
