The warmer time of the year is approaching fast, and one of the best treats is a glass of pink wine. Greece offers many styles of pink wines, the aromas and flavours of the different grape varieties used are stunning. I will write a mini-series of tasting notes on Greek pink wines, starting here with a 2008 Rodandos from Ktima Ligas. It is made from biological grown Xinomavro and Merlot grapes. The medium deep colour is similar to that of pink rose petals. It is bright and clean. The nose is quite open and reminds of freshly picked strawberries and clementines – very inviting indeed. The palate is dominated by a rich flavour of fruits, very fresh, again the red fruits are joined by citrus flavours. The soft acidity works very well with the residual sugar. A lovely wine. 15.5

About Markus Stolz

Over the last years, I have come to really appreciate Greek wines. There are many grape varieties that exist only in Greece and I have the good fortune of being able to try them all. I wish to share my enthusiasm with wine lovers around the world, who often limit themselves to maybe four red and four white grape varieties for most of their life.
