Best Wine of the Summer - By Far

My favorite wine of the summer is a little Greek white wine I learned about through Eric Asimov's wine column in the NY Times. It's the Mantinia Tselepos made from the Moschofilero grape, an indigenous varietal to Greece. Asimov described is "smelling like rose petals and tasting like grapefruit" and it is absolutely correct. In a sea of wine that all try to taste the same, this wine is beautiful and different. Pair with lighter seafood dishes, raw oysters, salads and sushi.
We have it in the Enomatics right now if you are curious and want to taste it.
