When you hear the words “Greek wine," do you think Retsina or wine labels featuring grape names you've never heard? Rest assured that you are not alone; but also know that the Greek wine industry has slowly been modernizing since its entry in the European Union in 1981. Additionally, indigenous varieties are the strength and identity of Greek wine. So, tap into your adventurous spirit, because Mylonas winery has you covered. The Mylonas family has been making wine for over one hundred years in the Attica growing region in central Greece. Their rosé is a blend of indigenous varietals Malagousia and Mandilaria. Malagousia, once thought extinct, has been revived through conservation efforts to become a premium white grape variety. Mandilaria, a red grape variety, is a common blending partner throughout the Aegean islands. Aromas of rose petal, honeysuckle, orange blossom, and sweet herb jump from the glass. The palate shifts with complementary flavors of tangerine, yellow apple, lemon peel, and a hint of ripe pomegranate. The bright acidity is complemented on the lingering finish by an elegant, almost savory quality. Simply delightful.
